Processing Chill and Heat Models for Temperate Fruit Trees

Calculates the chilling and heat accumulation for studies of the temperate fruit trees. The models in this package are: Utah (Richardson et al., 1974, ISSN:0018-5345), Positive Chill Units - PCU (Linsley-Noaks et al., 1995, ISSN:1017-0316), GDH-A - Growing Degree Hours by Anderson et al.(1986, ISSN:0567-7572), GDH-R - Growing Degree Hours by Richardson et al.(1975, ISSN:0018-5345), North Carolina (Shaltout e Unrath, 1983, ISSN:0003-1062), Landsberg Model (Landsberg, 1974, ISSN:0305-7364), Q10 Model (Bidabe, 1967, ISSN:0031-9368), Jones Model (Jones et al., 2013 ), Low-Chill Model (Gilreath and Buchanan, 1981, ISSN:0003-1062), Model for Cherry "Sweetheart" (Guak and Nielsen, 2013 ), Model for apple "Gala" (Guak and Nielsen, 2013 ), Taiwan Model (Lu et al., 2012 ), Dynamic Model (Fishman et al., 1987, ISSN:0022-5193) adapted from the function Dynamic_Model() of the 'chillR' package (Luedeling, 2018), Unified Model (Chuine et al., 2016 ) and Heat Restriction model.
