Long-term individual mark recapture, based on multiple observations per year from 1991-2017.
Covariates used as predictors in the model.
File (1) Individual histories of female barnacle geese over a 27-year study period (1990-2017). 2 =status breeding (observed with goslings), 1 = observed without goslings and 0 = not observed. Individuals histories were fitted with a multi-event model in E-SURGE to model the transitions probilities among states, the multi-event framework allows for estimation of state uncertainty i.e., whether a female was a pre-breeder (never bred before) or a non-breeder.
File (1) Scaled covariates, timing of spring onset (SO) and adult population size (POP) used as predictors in the multi-event model.
Model implementation can be found in the supplementary informatoin along with the manuscript.
