Can time-to-detection models with fewer survey replicates provide a robust alternative to traditional site-occupancy models?

Dominic Henry, Alan Lee & Res Altwegg
Occupancy models are widely used in ecology because they explicitly separate the observation and state processes and hence account for imperfect species detection. Traditional occupancy models that record detection/non-detection (DND) of a species typically rely on either spatial or temporal survey replication to estimate model parameters. Recording the time until a species is first encountered after starting a survey is often possible with little extra effort and such time-to-detection (TTD) surveys may be more efficient...
