Description Usage Arguments Value Author(s) References Examples

Description

Calculates the effects of temperature on decomposition rates according to a linear model.

Usage

1
fT.linear(Temp, a = 0.198306, b = 0.036337)

Arguments

Temp

A scalar or vector containing values of temperature for which the effects on decomposition rates are calculated.

a

A scalar defining the intercept of the linear function.

b

A scalar defining the slope of the linear function.

Value

A scalar or a vector containing the effects of temperature on decomposition rates (unitless).
