Test if a set of ages belongs to a given number of populations or alternatively find out the most probable number of populations within a range.
The function successively tests all values from
nbmax and keeps the smallest accepted one (returns an error if all
supplied values are rejected). In this case, the output value is an object of
NULL, the results are kept even if the test is
rejected. In this case, the output value is an object of class
The performed tests are those described in Montel et al. (1996).
