Ecolim model

Simple generic limiting factor based model, in the tradition of the PLANTGRO model (Hackett, 1991)

Keywords
spatial
Usage
# S4 method for matrix,matrix
ecolim(x, y, extrapolate=TRUE, ...)
Arguments
x

numeric matrix with driver variables (each column has values for the variables). Values have to be in ascending order

y

numeric matrix with responses (between 0 and 1), one column for each column in x

extrapolate

logical. Should the model extrapolate beyond the extremes of x? If TRUE the value of y at the closest data extreme in x is used, else NA is returned for such records

...

Additional arguments. None implemented
