Set of models used in a Cormack-Jolly-Seber recaptures-only analyses of cliff swallows to test hypotheses and estimate apparent survival and detection probability for the analysis of flushing.*.
Parameters with interactions are joined by '*', whereas parameters having parallel (additive) relationships are joined by '+'; Akaike's Information Criterion (AIC) values were corrected for over-dispersion (see Table 3), yielding quasi-AIC (QAICc) values; ΔQAICc values and model weights (wi) were used to rank models; see Table 1 for model notations. Here “k” indicates the number of parameters in the model and “QDev” indicates the quasi-deviance of the model.†
QAICc = 17369.01 for top-ranked model.
