    Abstract

    Conservation biology requires the assessment of demographic parameters and life-history data in wildlife populations. Such data can be gathered through capture-mark-recapture (CMR) of individuals. Marking techniques may vary for study organisms, research objectives and conditions, but all CMR studies have in common that the workload and expenditure is substantial, urging for cost-effective planning.
