raptr (0.0.5)

Representative and Adequate Prioritization Toolkit in R.


Biodiversity is in crisis. The overarching aim of conservation is to preserve biodiversity patterns and processes. To this end, protected areas are established to buffer species and preserve biodiversity processes. But resources are limited and so protected areas must be cost-effective. This package contains tools to generate plans for protected areas (prioritizations), using spatially explicit targets for biodiversity patterns and processes. To obtain solutions in a feasible amount of time, this package uses the commercial 'Gurobi' software package (obtained from ). Additionally, the 'rgurobi' package can also be installed to provide extra functionality (obtained from ).
