Introductory and and advanced occupancy modelling courses | Australia & US

Occupancy models are a suite of methods that have been developed for examining the patterns and dynamics of species occurrence (e.g., presence/absence) across a region of interest, particularly while account for the imperfect detection of species. They may be used in a wide range of ecological applications, from simply providing a monitoring metric, to investigating relationships between the distribution of a species with environmental variables (i.e., species distribution modelling), or how these change over time.

Darryl MacKenzie ( will be teaching an introductory and advanced workshop on these methods at Newcastle, Australia, in late September/early October 2018. Each course is 4.5 days long with a course fee of AUD$900 per course if registered before 10 August (AUD$1000 thereafter). For more more details go to

Darryl is also presently looking at some options for running these courses in Oct/Nov 2018 in the US. Email him (darryl'at' if you're interested so he can contact you once details are finalised.
