Support Functions and Data for "Ecological Models and Data"

Auxiliary functions and data sets for "Ecological Models and Data", a book presenting maximum likelihood estimation and related topics for ecologists (ISBN 978-0-691-12522-0).

News change default bandwidth within HPDregion minor cleanup to pass R CMD check add @data to calcslice 24/05/2010 (tweak/bugfix)

1.2.2: 17/03/2010 add (trivial) NAMESPACE add contour3d add xlim/ylim arguments to curve3d

1.2.1: 11/02/2010 remove adapt from install.packages(), add warning about adapt, move CITATION file

1.2: 17/08/2009 change test in lambertW to is.finite() added ggplot2 to install.packages(), streamline REMOVED "traceplot" code: nearly identical to xyplot.mcmc etc. in coda package 16/10/2008 add firfec0.bug to BUGS reverse date order of NEWS

1.1.1 tweak to curve3d from Robert Burns moved ChangeLog to NEWS added axis.scinot

1.1.0: argh, another tweak to get.emdbook.packages tweaked deltavar to be slightly more general

1.0.9: changed "Wrasse" to "Damsel[fish]" throughout (oops) tweaked get.emdbook.packages ( rather than sapply) tweaked LambertW NA behavior (still not optimal) ANOTHER big bug in dmvnorm (sigh): spurious factor of n before log determinant (should consider removing dmvnorm and just referring users to mvtnorm::dmvnorm) added cross-ref to mvtnorm::dmvnorm in dmvnorm.Rd

1.0.8: fixed major bugs in dmvnorm added bbmle to get.emdbook.packages added an extended version of trcoef (transform coefficients) added (preliminary) perturb.params tweaked some keywords/aliases added traditional parameterization for dbetabinom added note about SuppDists to ?dbetabinom removed coda dependency

   put myxo1.bug into BUGS directory

1.0.7: tweaked dbetabinom documentation fixed (major) bug in get.emdbook.packages added aliases to data .Rd files added reference to gsl package in lambertW Rd file added gridsearch2d added metropSB (Metropolis-Szymura-Barton)

1.0.6: internal tweaks tiny doc fix for Myxo (sum instead of bsum)

1.0.5: removed qcredint (HPDinterval[coda] is better) added calcslice, HPDregionplot, *chibarsq functions fixed deltavar tweaks to scinot() added lump.mcmc.list() changed dataset names, moved lily and goby data sets to emdbookx added require(coda) to as.mcmc.bugs added {d,r}betabinom added SeedPred_mass data (numeric vector of seed masses) added numeric derivatives to deltavar fixed bug in calcslice (not referring to correct function) added Lily data (moved from emdbookx)

1.0.4: added r/dzinbinom (zero-inflated negative binomial) functions lseq scinot added myxomatosis data added "none" option to curve3d added credible interval functions, as.mcmc.bugs

1.0.3: added more data (fir and fish survivorship), delta-method functions, get-packages function

1.0.1: added Vonesh data, lambertW function (from bbmisc)
