An R package for modeling bumblebee colony growth

December 13, 2017

The bumbl package implements a model for bumblebee colony growth described in Crone and Williams 2019. It models colony growth as having a change point at some time, tau, where the colony switches from growth and worker production to gyne production. The bumbl() function applies this model to data from multiple colonies, allowing for each colony to have it’s own tau and returns the original data augmented with coefficients from the changepoint model.
