New Biometrics paper

A new modelling framework for fast Bayesian inference in large occupancy data sets by Alex, Emily, Eleni and Byron just published in Biometrics.

The model accounts for spatio-temporal autocorrelation and gives robust inference on species presence, as evidence by the simulation results in the paper and the two case studies on one common and widespread and one rare species, using records from the Butterflies for the New Millennium database, producing occupancy indices spanning 45 years.
