LeafAngle-package: Functions for fitting and displaying leaf angle distributions

Description Details Author(s) References


A number of standard distributions to fit to (plant) leaf angle distributions: a special kind of distribution where 0 <= angle <= 90 (degrees). Based on the list of distributions summarized by Wang et al. (2007). Uses maximum-likelihood to find parameters, determines best fitting distributions, and includes some simple plotting methods.
