Abstract
We are grateful for Keevil’s (2020) identification of a mistakenly limited prior in the code we supplied as a supplement to Reinke et al. (2020), describing a new model. Within our paper, we demonstrated use of a hierarchical model using mark–recapture datasets that were also published as supplementary material. The introduction of the model was the focus of our paper and the code was included as a courtesy to those who would like to use the model, with parameters adjusted to suit their needs. This transparency allowed Keevil (2020) to run our model with the provided example datasets, identify the limited prior, and set values of their choosing. We are therefore pleased to see firsthand the benefits of open access in science.
