Component processes of detection probability in camera-trap studies: understanding the occurrence of false-negatives

Journal Article
Findlay, M. A., Briers, R. A., & White, P. J. C. (2020)
Component processes of detection probability in camera-trap studies: understanding the occurrence of false-negatives. Mammal Research, 65, 167-180. https://doi.org/10.1007/s13364-020-00478-y
Camera-trap studies in the wild record true-positive data, but data loss from false-negatives (i.e. an animal is present but not recorded) is likely to vary and widely impact ...
