Hi All, I'm currently in the process of running ZIP models in rjags to test some hypotheses about duck pair abundance. The zero-inflated models include only an intercept parameter and then 3 different dummy parameters to represent the wetland cover class variables 2, 3, and 4. In theory, one would expect the non-transformed value of the parameter estimates to decrease in value from cover class 1 to 4 sequentially. I'm seeing this trend in the MLE models we ran first actually: (Intercept) WCCone WCCthree WCCtwo -6.4537 6.0062 0.8016 3.5753
