Expands the spatial population range by a specified distance in a given time-window

expand(
  pop,
  by,
  end,
  start,
  overlap = 0.8,
  snapshots = NULL,
  polygon = NULL,
  lock = FALSE,
  verbose = TRUE
)

Arguments

pop

Object of the class slendr_pop

by

How many units of distance to expand by?

start, end

When does the expansion start/end?

overlap

Minimum overlap between subsequent spatial boundaries

snapshots

The number of intermediate snapshots (overrides the overlap parameter)

polygon

Geographic region to restrict the expansion to

lock

Maintain the same density of individuals. If FALSE (the default), the number of individuals in the population will not change. If TRUE, the number of individuals simulated will be changed (increased or decreased) appropriately, to match the new population range area.

verbose

Report on the progress of generating intermediate spatial boundaries?

Value

Object of the class slendr_pop
