Table 1.

Recapture counts and rates (proportion of individuals sampled more than once) for the three grouping schemes when samples are pooled or when dog-directed and human-directed search samples are evaluated separately. (a) grouping scheme 1: only matching samples found at the same GPS locations are considered false recaptures (and one sample is omitted from the dataset); (b) grouping scheme 2: samples found in same nest group are considered the same group, therefore, matching samples found in the same nest group are considered false recaptures; and (c) grouping scheme 3: samples found within 57 m of one other on the same day are considered the same group, therefore, matching samples found using this grouping criteria are considered false recaptures.
