Description Details Author(s) References See Also

Description

GUTS (General Unified Threshold model of Survival) is a stochastic survival model for ecotoxicology. The package allows for the definition of exposure and survival time series as well as parameter values, and the fast calculation of the survival probabilities as well as the logarithm of the corresponding likelihood.
