ssdtools: Species Sensitivity Distributions

Species sensitivity distributions are cumulative probability distributions which are fitted to toxicity concentrations for different species as described by Posthuma et al.(2001) <isbn:9781566705783>. The ssdtools package uses Maximum Likelihood to fit distributions such as the log-normal, gamma, log-logistic, log-Gumbel, Gompertz and Weibull. The user can provide custom distributions. Multiple distributions can be averaged using Information Criteria. Confidence intervals on hazard concentrations and proportions are produced by parametric bootstrapping.
