IPMpack: Builds and analyses Integral Projection Models (IPMs)
IPMpack takes demographic vital rates and (optionally)
environmental data to build integral projection models. A
number of functional forms for growth and survival can be
incorporated, as well as a range of reproductive strategies.
The package also includes a suite of diagnostic routines,
provides classic matrix model output (e.g., lambda,
elasticities, sensitivities), and produces post-hoc metrics
(e.g., passage time and life expectancy).
