    Counts. The Auk 2000; 117(2): 393-408.

R version of DOBSERV

An updated version of DOBSERV has been written in R which adds the ability to model detection probability as a function of covariates (in addition to observer and species). To install the package, type the following in the R console window:

install.packages('https://www.mbr-pwrc.usgs.gov/software/bin/dobserv_0.1.3.zip',repo=NULL)
or, for Mac or Linux, type:
install.packages('https://www.mbr-pwrc.usgs.gov/software/bin/dobserv_0.1.3.tar.gz',repo=NULL)

To manually download...
