Compartment models are nonlinear statistical models used to evaluate the movement of a substance of interest, for example a drug or a wildlife population, through compartments, which are often physical spaces, such as bodily organs or geographical areas. These models can provide substantial insight into dynamic biological processes and are becoming increasingly popular in a broad range of disciplines. The methodology and usefulness of compartment models will be illustrated through application to several novel biological and agricultural examples and areas of research will be discussed.
