Courses withdrawn due to unforeseen circumstances. Plan to reschedule courses in 2020, thanks for your interest!

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.
