Description of indicator functionsSource:
Mizer provides a range of functions to calculate indicators from a MizerSim object.
A list of available indicator functions for MizerSim objects is given in the table below
|A vector with values at each time step.||Calculates the proportion of large fish through time. The threshold value can be specified. It is possible to calculation the proportion of large fish based on either length or weight.|
|A vector with values at each saved time step.||The mean weight of the community through time. This is calculated as the total biomass of the community divided by the total abundance.|
|Depends on the measure argument. If measure = “both” then you get a matrix with two columns, one with values by numbers, the other with values by biomass at each saved time step. If measure = “numbers” or “biomass” you get a vector of the respective values at each saved time step||The mean maximum weight of the community through time. This can be calculated by numbers or by biomass. See the help file for more details.|
|A data.frame with four columns: time step, slope, intercept and the coefficient of determination.||Calculates the slope of the community abundance spectrum through time by performing a linear regression on the logged total numerical abundance and logged body size.|
