rMR-package: Importing Data from Loligo Systems Software Output,...

Description Details Author(s) References See Also


Analysis of oxygen consumption data generated by Loligo (R) Systems respirometry equipment. The package includes a function for loading data output by Loligo's 'AutoResp' software (get.witrox.data()), functions for calculating metabolic rates over user-specified time intervals, extracting critical points from data using broken stick regressions based on Yeager and Ultsch (1989), and easy functions for converting between different units of barometric pressure.
