    Is this basically the capture, mark and release method with a posh name? Or something else completely?

    N = S1 x S2 / R

    Where N = Estimated population size
    s1= Number of organisms marked and released
    s2= number of organisms captured in second sample
    R= Number of marked organisms recaptured

    I was flicking through a past paper and noticed there was a question on this, without the formula, so I'm trying to learn it now!! (The horror! :eek: )
