The isobxr package is a set of R tools designed to perform and explore stable isotope box modelling of open or closed systems. It allows users to develop and test isotopic box models of their system of interest, explore the behavior of these systems in both static (e.g., at steady state) or dynamic modes (e.g., in reaction to a perturbation), build complex scenarios, as well as sweep the space of parameters in both static and dynamic modes.
It is available as a released package and can be installed directly from CRAN by calling:
The isobxr development version can be installed as follows:
devtools::install_github("ttacail/isobxr/isobxr", build_vignettes = TRUE) # FALSE if no pandoc/Rstudio
The full description of installation process can be found here.
The documentation about underlying theory and isobxr use is made fully available to user in the package website.
