We fit the model where colonization and extinction depended on -- IMAGE: Please see in attached file. -- in WinBUGS (code.txt) and compared parameter estimates and computation time between these approaches. The model was run with 3 chains for 20000 iterations, and inference was based on the last 10000 iterations.

Parameter estimates and computation time (SE in parenthesis):
