MigConnectivity: Estimate Migratory Connectivity for Migratory Animals

Allows the user to estimate transition probabilities for migratory animals between any two phases of the annual cycle, using a variety of different data types. Also quantifies the strength of migratory connectivity (MC), a standardized metric to quantify the extent to which populations co-occur between two phases of the annual cycle. Includes functions to estimate MC and the more traditional metric of migratory connectivity strength (Mantel correlation) incorporating uncertainty from multiple sources of sampling error. For cross-species comparisons, methods are provided to estimate differences in migratory connectivity strength, incorporating uncertainty. See Cohen et al. (2018) <doi:10.1111/2041-210X.12916>, Cohen et al. (2019) <doi:10.1111/ecog.03974>, and Roberts et al. (2023) <doi:10.1002/eap.2788> for details on some of these methods.
