bSims: Agent-Based Bird Point Count Simulator

A highly scientific and utterly addictive bird point count simulator to test statistical assumptions, aid survey design, and have fun while doing it (Solymos 2024 <doi:10.1007/s42977-023-00183-2>). The simulations follow time-removal and distance sampling models based on Matsuoka et al. (2012) <doi:10.1525/auk.2012.11190>, Solymos et al. (2013) <doi:10.1111/2041-210X.12106>, and Solymos et al. (2018) <doi:10.1650/CONDOR-18-32.1>, and sound attenuation experiments by Yip et al. (2017) <doi:10.1650/CONDOR-16-93.1>.
