Table 2. Parameter estimates from the 2005–2008 mark-recapture model using data from squirrel glider (Petaurus norfolcensis) populations in southeast Australia. For each parameter, two values are provided: the first was estimated with vague priors; the one underneath was estimated with informative priors for annual survival rates in control populations.
