caribou: Estimation of caribou abundance based on large scale aggregations monitored by radio telemetry

This is a package for estimating the population size of migratory caribou herds based on large scale aggregations monitored by radio telemetry. It implements the methodology found in the article by Rivest et al. (1998) about caribou abundance estimation. It also includes a function based on the Lincoln-Petersen Index as applied to radio telemetry data by White and Garrott (1990).
