This package provides a function computing the Gaussian distributions of the headcapsule width of the first three larval instars of any given Curculionid species from the observed distribution of headcapsule sizes of mature larvae from the same species.
Any larva of this species is assigned to the most probable instar, only using its own headcapsule width and the size distribution of the last larval instar, i.e. the mature instar, of the considered species.
The regular usage in this package is to use firstly the
cinid.table function and secondly the
