Abstract:
We devised a way to distinguish separate visits by animals to a camera station. The probability that an image of a long-nosed potoroo (Potorous tridactylus) would occur declined with time since the last potoroo image, reaching an asymptote after 5min at a level that may represent the probability of initiation of new visits.
