SchnuteRichards {FSA} | R Documentation |
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)
SchnuteRichards(t, Linf = NULL, k = NULL, a = NULL, b = NULL, c = NULL)
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. |
SchnuteRichards
returns a predicted size given the provided parameter values.
None specifically, but 12-Individual Growth is related.
