New R Package: respfun
I just created a new
R package to release some functions that I find useful when working with respirometry data:
I’ll be adding more soon, but for now it only has one function:
split_rate. We used this in our recent paper in MEPS on social squid metabolism. It’s a function to divide a metabolic rate between a group of individuals based on their masses and a metabolic scaling exponent.
Stay tuned for more additions to the package soon. These will be functions that could easily fit into my other respirometry package
respR but are a wee bit more specialised, and we want to keep that package lean and mean.
I will however make sure the functions in
respfun integrate well with
respR where possible. For instance,
split_rate recognises objects saved from r
espR::convert_rate and the rate and units will be automatically extracted. See the Github page for a nice example of how it can be integrated (or
%>% piped) into a
