I just submitted to Oikos a paper entitled "Individual heterogeneity and capture-recapture models: what, why and how?". A pre-print is available [here](http://biorxiv.org/content/early/2017/03/26/120683). I also provide R codes on GitHub [there](http://bit.ly/2nqWzoZ).
I had the visit of Raluca Bancila a research scientist from Romania. We investigated spatio-temporal environmental variation in and individual heterogeneity on emigration/immigration rates of the troglophile harvestmen species Paranemastoma silli with capture-recapture models.
As part of the GdR EcoStat and our evolutionary demography group, we had a stimulating workshop on the quantification of individual heterogeneity in survival of wild populations using an approach recently developed by Hal Caswell.
We had a lovely 2-day workshop in Lyon on individual heterogeneity in demography as part of our research group on Statistical Ecology. I gave a short talk providing an overview of heterogeneous capture-recapture models.
Below are the slides of my plenary talk at the 2013 EURING meeting on individual variability in capture-recapture models. I couldn’t attend, but the organizers were kind enough to run my presentation to the audience.
