Description Usage Arguments Value References Examples

Description

Calculates foraging distande from Greenleaf et al. (2007) using intertegular distance values (IT).

Usage

1
ITforaging(IT, type = "all")

Arguments

IT

A vector of bee intertegular spans (IT) measurments in cm.

type

The type of foraging distance desired. Options are "all", "Maximum homing distance", "Typical homing distance", "Maximum feeder training distance", "Maximum communication distance". See details in Greenleaf et al. 2007.

Value

A dataframe with bee and foraging distance (Km) is returned for each bees species. mhd: Maximum homing distance thd: Typical homing distance mfd: Maximum feeder training distance mcd: Maximum communication distance
