SchnuteRichards {FSA}R Documentation

The five-parameter growth function from Schnute and Richards (1990).

Description

The five-parameter growth function from Schnute and Richards (1990). Note that this function is slightly modified (a ‘+’ was changed to a ‘-’ so that the ‘a’ parameter will be positive) from the original in Schnute and Richards (1990)

Usage

SchnuteRichards(t, Linf = NULL, k = NULL, a = NULL, b = NULL,
  c = NULL)

Arguments

t

A numeric vector of ages over which to model growth.

Linf

Mean asymptotic length.

k

The "growth coefficient" with units of (year^(-c)).

a

A dimensionless parameter

b

A dimensionless parameter.

c

A dimensionless parameter.

Value

SchnuteRichards returns a predicted size given the provided parameter values.

IFAR Chapter

None specifically, but 12-Individual Growth is related.
