Manuscript accepted in Ecology and Evolution

Covariate and multinomial: accounting for distance in movement in capture-recapture analyses is a research manuscript 1st authored by Loreleï Guéry and resulting from a collaboration between me, Loreleï and other researchers in France, Canada and Norway was accepted last week in Ecology and Evolution.

This paper proposes a how-to guide for calculating the correct Variance-Covariance matrices of dependant estimates involved in multinomial distributions and how to use them for testing the effects of covariates in post-hoc analyses when the integration of these analyses directly into a model is not possible. For illustrative purpose, we focused on variables calculated in capture-recapture models, but the same procedure can be applied to all analyses dealing with correlated estimates with multinomial distribution and their variances and covariances.
