Provides functions to generate and analyze individual-based spatially-explicit
simulations of multi-state movements in heterogeneous landscapes, based on "resistance"
rasters. Although originally conceived and designed to simulate spatially-explicit trajectories
of species constrained to linear habitats or dendritic ecological networks (e.g., river networks), the simulation
algorithm is built to be highly flexible and can be applied to any (aquatic, semi-aquatic or
terrestrial) organism, independently on the landscape in which it moves. Thus, the user will be able to use the package
to simulate movements either in homogeneous landscapes, heterogeneous landscapes (e.g. semi-aquatic animal moving
mainly along rivers but also using the matrix), or even in highly contrasted landscapes
(e.g. fish in a river network). The algorithm and its input parameters are the same for all
cases, so that results are comparable. Simulated trajectories can then be used as mechanistic
null models to test e.g. for species site fidelity and other 'Movement Ecology' hypotheses
