Body Mass Estimates Using Christiansen and Farina (2004)
This function is meant for bipedal mass estimate (in particular theropod dinosaurs) and presently only estimates body mass based on the femoral circumference equation of Christiansen and Farina (2004) derived from volumetric reconstructions of theropod dinosaurs
a value or vector representing femoral circumference (in mm)
an optional object of
If a data object is specified, the mass estiamtes will be added as a column to the data.frame or matrix within that object.
A numeric value or vector representing the mass estimate(s) in grams
