Defines functions model_abundance

Documented in model_abundance

#' Calculate predicted abundance
#' Calculates the predicted abundance by multiplying the density prediction values by prediction polygon areas
#' @param x object of class \code{sf}; SDM with density predictions.
#'   Must have a valid crs code
#' @param dens.idx name or index of column(s) in \code{x} with density predictions.
#'   Can be a character vector (column names) or numeric vector (column indices)
#' @param sum.abund logical; whether or not to sum all of the predicted abundances
#' @details Multiplies the values in the specified column(s) (i.e. the density predictions)
#'   by the area in square kilometers of their corresponding prediction polygon.
#'   The area of each prediction polygon is calculated using \code{st_area} from \code{\link[sf]{geos_measures}}.
#'   x must have a valid crs code to calculate area for these abundance calculations.
#' @return If \code{sum.abund == TRUE}, then a vector of the same length as \code{dens.idx}
#'   representing the predicted abundance for the density values in each column.
#'   If \code{sum.abund == FALSE} and the length of \code{dens.idx} is 1,
#'   then a numeric vector with the predicted abundance of each prediction polygon of \code{x}.
#'   If \code{sum.abund == FALSE} and the length of \code{dens.idx} is greater than 1,
#'   then a data frame with \code{length(dens.idx)} columns of the predicted abundance of prediction polygons
#' @examples
#' model_abundance(preds.1, "Density")
#' model_abundance(preds.1, c(1, 1))
#' model_abundance(preds.1, c(1, 1), FALSE)
#' @export
