Individual heterogeneity in marked: error when re=T

Individual heterogeneity in marked: error when re=T

Postby jbauder » Sat Nov 11, 2017 5:30 pm

Hello,

I recently started looking into the "marked" package to incorporate individual heterogeneity described by Gimenez and Choquet (2012). I am specifically interested in modeling individual heterogeneity in p (not so much in phi). Laake et al. (2013) states that this can be accomplished using use.admb=T and re=T. I also looked at a vignette on Dr. Laake's github site which provided some example code (which I use below). However, when I use the argument re=T I get the following error.

Code: Select all
> admb.mod=crm(test.proc,test.ddl,hessian=T,
+                    use.admb=TRUE,re=T,compile=TRUE)
Error in crm(test.proc, test.ddl, hessian = T, use.admb = TRUE, re = T,  :
  argument 5 matches multiple formal arguments


I am using marked v. 1.1.13 so could this be due to outdated code? I looked through several recent paper's to see if someone tried to use this feature in the last year or so but did not find any examples. When I remove re=T the crm() function works great. I apologize if I have missed something simple in the help documentation!

Also, I noticed that RMark has a model type "CJSRandom." Is this the Gimenez and Choquet (2012) individual heterogeneity model implemented in MARK?

Here is a subset of my data, code, and the results I get when not using re=T.

Thanks so much,
Javan

Thought it worth mentioning that all the models you just mentioned are 'doable' in MARK (Gauss-Hermite quadrature to parse out Gaussian RE, for example, has been there for a few years...).

Thanks Evan, I was wondering about that but wasn't sure. Are there examples of implementing this approach for a CJS model? I (very quickly!) looked through the MARK book and found the addendum to chapter 14 describing which models have mixture options but didn't see any specific examples...?

Nothing in terms of specific examples, since there isn't much you need really -- beyond how to get there. Pretty simple. Try the male dipper data. Run a simple phi(t)p(t) model, then, 'PIM | Change Data Type', second from bottom is 'CJS with Random Effects'. Select that, open PIM chart -- there is now a sigma for phi, and a sigma for p, but otherwise, the modelling is the same. Be advised that these models can take a long time to run. Even from something as 'trivial' as the dipper data -- <1 second for a fixed effect CJS fit of phi(t)p(t), >10 minutes for a RE version of same. The convenient thing about the approach based on GH is that its based on an ML approach, so you can use (or abuse, depending on who you ask), ML-based model selection tools (like AIC).

Awesome, thanks! But actually I was wondering about RMark/marked. :) Maybe Jeff can chime in...?

I'll have to look at the problem with marked tomorrow. Evan is quite correct that you can do this with MARK and CJSRandom is implemented in RMark. It simply adds parameters sigmap and sigmaphi. With the random effects module in marked you can also have other random effects like time.

As is often the case, there are lots of different ways to 'get there from here'. For temporal RE, you can used Burnham's method of moments approach (Appendix D), MCMC (Appendix E), or what Jeff has built into marked.
