A set of functions to quantify the relationship between development rate and temperature. The package comprises a set of models and estimated parameters borrowed from a literature review in ectotherms (mostly arthropods).
The devRate package allows quantifying the relationship between development rate and temperature in ectotherm organisms.
You can use the package:
The devRate package provides three categories of functions:
UMR EGCE, Univ. ParisSud, CNRS, IRD, Univ. ParisSaclay, Gif-sur-Yvette, France
