install_models {allometric}R Documentation

Install allometric models from the models repository


Allometric models are stored in a remote repository located on GitHub located here. The user must install these models themselves using this function. This function clones the models repository within the allometric package directory and constructs a local dataframe containing the models. This dataframe is stored in the global environment variable allometric_models upon completion of the function. Refer to allometric::allometric_models for further information.
