acmeR: Implements ACME Estimator of Bird and Bat Mortality by Wind Turbines

Implementation of estimator ACME, described in Wolpert (2015), ACME: A Partially Periodic Estimator of Avian & Chiropteran Mortality at Wind Turbines (submitted). Unlike most other models, this estimator supports decreasing-hazard Weibull model for persistence; decreasing search proficiency as carcasses age; variable bleed-through at successive searches; and interval mortality estimates. The package provides, based on search data, functions for estimating the mortality inflation factor in Frequentist and Bayesian settings.
