Ix Belize Jaguar Project:

Ocelot density and survival across Belize,  2013--2016

A spin-off project of the Belize Jaguar Project, we painstakingly identified individual Ocelots (via camera trap photos) by their unique spot patterns. We then estimated density and survival using spatially explicit capture-recapture modeling techniques. This study covered over seven sites and twelve years.

We produced some of the first rigorous information available on Ocelot demographic parameters ever.
