Analysis of Incubation Data

Suite of functions to study animal incubation. At the core of incR lies an algorithm that allows for the scoring of incubation behaviour. Additionally, several functions extract biologically relevant metrics of incubation such as off-bout number and off-bout duration - for a review of avian incubation studies, see Nests, Eggs, and Incubation: New ideas about avian reproduction (2015) edited by D. Charles Deeming and S. James Reynolds .
