ecotox: Analysis of Ecotoxicology

A simple approach to using a probit or logit analysis to calculate lethal concentration (LC) or time (LT) and the appropriate fiducial confidence limits desired for selected LC or LT for ecotoxicology studies (Finney 1971; Wheeler et al. 2006; Robertson et al. 2007). The simplicity of 'ecotox' comes from the syntax it implies within its functions which are similar to functions like glm() and lm(). In addition to the simplicity of the syntax, a comprehensive data frame is produced which gives the user a predicted LC or LT value for the desired level and a suite of important parameters such as fiducial confidence limits and slope.
