Joint Special Feature: Modelling Demographic Processes in Marked Populations: Proceedings of the EURING 2013 analytical meeting

Guest Editors: Charles M. Francis, Richard J. Barker and Evan G. Cooch

This Special Feature brings together 31 papers (listed below) presented at the EURING 2013 technical conference, that collectively cover many of the latest developments in the analysis of data from marked individuals to estimate demographic parameters, such as survival, recruitment, nest success, density, population size and movement.

The papers are published jointly in Methods in Ecology and Evolution and the open access journal Ecology and Evolution.
