Occupancy Estimation and Modeling: Inferring Patterns and Dynamics of Species Occurrence
Occupancy Estimation and Modeling is the first book to examine the latest methods in analyzing presence/absence data surveys. Using 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 m...more

I didn't get through the last few chapters before I had to mail it back to my bosses, but I'm counting it on Goodreads anyway. I read what was pertinent for my current job, and I don't anticipate needing to model multiple-species interactions anytime soon. Fairly well-written and logical from my perspective, but I'm not sure how understandable it would be to someone completely unfamiliar with occupancy modelling.
Extremely insightful and detailed look at occupancy estimation and modeling. However, it is very dense and full of difficult concepts which often made it challenging for me (someone very new to modeling) to understand and find what I needed.
