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 accounting 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 I. MacKenzie, co-author of some of the seminal papers on these methods (, will be teaching introductory and advanced courses at the above locations in 2019. Each course is 4.5 days long, and course fees vary by location.
