PLastic ACcumulation Estimate using R (PLACER)

Assessment of the prevalence of plastic debris in bird nests based on bootstrap replicates. The package allows for calculating bootstrapped 95% confidence intervals for the estimated prevalence of debris. Combined with a Bayesian approach, the resampling simulations can be also used to define appropriate sample sizes to detect prevalence of plastics. The method has wide application, and can also be applied to estimate confidence intervals and define sample sizes for the prevalence of plastics ingested by any other organisms. The method is described in Tavares et al. (Submitted).
