A one piece electrode is disclosed for use in miniature and subminiature lamps having a large diameter post section and a smaller diameter lead-in section. The lead-in section is formed by an electrochemical process from a wire that has an outer diameter equal to the desired post diameter. A smooth evenly tapered transition section between the post and lead-in sections is created during the etching process which permits heat to pass through the electrode at a controlled and predictable rate.

We tested whether increased phosphorus and nitrogen concentrations would affect a lake trout (Salvelinus namaycush) population in a small oligotrophic lake with a benthically dominated food web. From 1990 to 1994, nitrogen and phosphorus were added to Lake N1 (4.4 ha) at the arctic Long-Term Ecological Research site in Alaska. We used mark/recapture methods to determine the lake trout population size, size structure, recruitment, and individual growth from 1987 to 1999. Data were also collected ...

The assumption of demographic closure in the analysis of capture-recapture data under closed-population models is of fundamental importance. Yet, little progress has been made in the development of omnibus tests of the closure assumption. We present a closure test for time-specific data that, in principle, tests the null hypothesis of closed-population model M t against the open-population Jolly-Seber model as a specific alternative. This test is chi-square, and can be decomposed into informativ...

SUMMARY We consider the problem of estimation of the size of a small population based on the results of a certain type of capture-recapture experiment. Seven methods for constructing confidence intervals for the population size, N, are considered. One of the methods, the "ad hoc" method, is new, while the other six are maximum likelihood methods. For large confidence levels (i.e., 90% or more) extensive computer simulation of the experiment indicates that the ad hoc method tends to yield more re...

We present ways to test the assumptions of the Petersen and removal methods of population size estimation and ways to adjust the estimates if violations of the assumptions are found. We were motivated by the facts that (1) results of using both methods are commonly reported without any reference to the testing of assumptions, (2) violations of the assumptions are more likely to occur than not to occur in natural populations, and (3) the estimates can be grossly in error if assumptions are violat...

In recent years capture-tag-recapture experiments have been widely used for estimating the size of animal populations (cf. Cormack [1968] for an excellent review). However, such methods are only applicable when a number of restrictive assumptions are known to be true, or at least approximately true. For example, it is generally assumed that all animals are equicatchable, and that trapping and tagging do not affect future catchability. However, in practice catchability may vary from individual to...
