The bamm package is an R package designed to estimate dynamic models of species distributions using the concepts of the BAM scheme. It allows to operate on large matrices (tens of millions of cells) regarding to each element of the BAM, for example, the adjacency matrix (connectivity matrix), and the niche suitability matrices.

The dynamic model behind the package is the cellular automata

The main functions of the package are:


if (!require('devtools')) install.packages('devtools')
# If you want to build vignette, install pandoc before and then
