A seasonal decomposition of the estimated size of a penguin population at Phillip Island, Australia
Modern non-parametric methods allow the estimation of a population size under weaker conditions than the classical methods if there are frequent capture occasions. Here a non-parametric estimate of the number of penguins occupying Summerland Beach, Phillip Island, Australia, was computed. This estimator did not assume equal catchability of individuals, did not assume a parametric form for the population size as a function of time and allowed individuals to leave and re-enter the population.
