Simulate the Extent of Host Switching by Consumers

Using a simulation-based approach, the 'HostSwitch' package provides functions to investigate host switches by consumers. The individual-based model is based on the concept of ecological fitting. The mockup model is published by Araujo et al. 2015. Understanding Host-Switching by Ecological Fitting (). The package provides an R-friendly and modified version of this model which can be applied to different consumer-resource scenarios.
