isocat: Isotope Origin Clustering and Assignment Tools

This resource provides tools to create, compare, and post-process spatial isotope assignment models of animal origin. It generates probability-of-origin maps for individuals based on user-provided tissue and environment isotope values (e.g., as generated by IsoMAP, Bowen et al. [2013] <doi:10.1111/2041-210X.12147>) using the framework established in Bowen et al. (2010) <doi:10.1146/annurev-earth-040809-152429>). The package 'isocat' can then quantitatively compare and cluster these maps to group individuals by similar origin. It also includes techniques for applying four approaches (cumulative sum, odds ratio, quantile only, and quantile simulation) with which users can summarize geographic origins and probable distance traveled by individuals. Campbell et al. [2020] establishes several of the functions included in this package <doi:10.1515/ami-2020-0004>.
