Abstract

We release here the fluxweb package (https://github.com/gauzens/fluxweb.git) which merges allometric theory with food web energetics methods to provide a set of functions that estimate energy fluxes in complex food webs based on easily accessible ecological informations. Overall, the fluxweb package offers some tools for research on quantitative food webs and ecosystem functions, which facilitates novel research on ecosystem functions in real and dynamic natural landscapes.
