about

Occupancy Estimation and Modeling: Inferring Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurrence, Second Editionis the first book to examine the latest methods in analyzing presence-absence data surveys. Through the use of four classes of models-single-species/single-season, single-species/multiple season, multiple-species/single-season, and multiple-species/multiple-season-the authors discuss the practical sampling situation, present a likelihood-based model that enables direct estimation of the occupancy-related parameters, take into account imperfect detectability, and make recommendations for designing studies using these models.



  • Provides authoritative insights into the latest in estimation modeling
  • Examines the latest methods in analyzing presence/absence data surveys
  • Discusses multiple models that lay the groundwork for future study designs
  • Addresses critical issues of imperfect detectability and its effects on estimation
  • Explores the role of probability in estimating in detail
