Skink Capture Data

Skink capture data: spatially explicit capture-recapture of skinks in pitfall traps, and counts of skinks found in artificial retreats.

Data supporting paper Wilson DJ, Mulvey RL, Clarke DA, Reardon JT 2017. Assessing and comparing population densities and indices of skinks under three predator management regimes. New Zealand Journal of Ecology 41(1).
