stockRecruitment {FSA}R Documentation

Creates a function for a specific parameterization of a common stock-recruitment function .

Description

Creates a function for a specific parameterization of a “Beverton-Holt”, “Ricker”, “Shepherd”, or “Saila-Lorda” stock-recruitment function. Use srFunShow() to see the equations of each function.

Usage

srFuns(type = c("BevertonHolt", "Ricker", "Shepherd", "SailaLorda",
  "independence"), param = 1, simple = FALSE, msg = FALSE)

srFunShow(type = c("BevertonHolt", "Ricker", "Shepherd", "SailaLorda"),
  param = 1, plot = FALSE, ...)

Arguments

type

A string that indicates the type of stock-recruitment function.

param

A single numeric that indicates the parameterization of the stock-recruitment function.

simple

A logical that indicates whether the user should be allowed to send all parameter values in the first parameter argument (=FALSE; default) or whether all individual parameters must be specified (=TRUE).

msg

A logical that indicates whether a message about the function and parameter definitions should be output (=TRUE) or not (=FALSE; default).

plot

A logical that indicates whether the growth function expression should be shown as an equation in a simple plot.

...

Not implemented.

Value

srFuns returns a function that can be used to predict recruitment given a vector of stock sizes and values for the function parameters. The result should be saved to an object that can then be used as a function name. When the resulting function is used, the parameters are ordered as shown when the definitions of the parameters are printed after the function is called (assuming that msg=TRUE). The values for both/all parameters can be included as a vector of length two/three in the first parameter argument. If simple=FALSE then the values for all parameters can be included as a vector in the first parameter argument. If simple=TRUE then all parameters must be declared individually in each function. The resulting function is somewhat easier to read when simple=TRUE.

srFunShow returns an expression that can be use with plotmath to show the function equation in a pretty format. See examples.
