Answer: The final answer depends on the choice of prior (the assumptions about the population size before the search is carried out) and the search procedure (whether a fixed number of animals are captured at each attempt, or whether as many as possible are captured). In cases where large populations are widely surveyed, these differences are small, but in small-number cases they can have a large effect on the estimated population.

Please best the solution.
