Examples

data(Owls, package = "glmmTMB")
require("lattice")
bwplot(reorder(Nest,NegPerChick) ~ NegPerChick | FoodTreatment:SexParent,
       data=Owls)
dotplot(reorder(Nest,NegPerChick) ~ NegPerChick| FoodTreatment:SexParent,
        data=Owls)
## Not run: 
## Fit negative binomial model with "constant" Zero Inflation :
owls_nb1 <- glmmTMB(SiblingNegotiation ~ FoodTreatment*SexParent +
                                    (1|Nest)+offset(log(BroodSize)),
              family = nbinom1(), zi = ~1, data=Owls)
owls_nb1_bs <- update(owls_nb1,
                      . ~ . - offset(log(BroodSize)) + log(BroodSize))
fixef(owls_nb1_bs)

## End(Not run)
