BeeIT

Tools to estimate tongue length, foraging distance and body weight form bees intertegular distances (IT).

How to use it?

You have to install the package from GitHub. Thats easy:

install.packages("devtools")
require(devtools)
install_github('ibartomeus/BeeIT')
library(BeeIT)

Once the package is loaded, its use is pretty simple, it require a vector of intertegular distances (IT) and bee families.

#dummy dataset
its <- rnorm(100, 10, 2)
families <- rep(c("Andrenidae", "Apidae", "Colletidae", "Halictidae", "Megachilidae"),20)
Out <- ITconverter(IT = its, family = families)
plot(Out$tongue_length.tongue ~ Out$body_mass)

You can ask for help

?ITconverter
?ITtongue
?ITforaging
?ITweigth

Or access the data used to fit the equation:

data(tongues)
head(tongues)
?tongues

And cite our paper if you use it:

Or find the paper here: "Cariveau, Nayak, Bartomeus, Ascher, Winfree. 2015 The allometry of bee tongue length an its uses in ecology and evolution" http://journals.plos.org/plosone/article?id=10.1371/journal.pone.0151482
