SECR is used for estimating animal population density and related parameters. The method combines a spatial population model and a spatial (distance-dependent) detection model. It has been used extensively for the analysis of data from DNA hair snags, automatic cameras, and conventional traps. The main aim of this 3-day course is to give participants a practical understanding of SECR and its limitations through the experience of fitting models with the R package ‘secr’
