AlleleRetain-package: Allele Retention, Inbreeding, and Demography


Simulates the effect of management or demography on allele retention and inbreeding accumulation in bottlenecked populations of animals with overlapping generations.


Typically, the user will run aRetain, then aRetain.summary to assess characteristics of the simulated population. indiv.summary and pedigree.summary (requires package pedigree) will provide further output.
