Purpose of the package

A breakpoint-based method to detect ontogenetic shifts in univariate time-activity budget series of central-place foraging insects. The method finds a single breakpoint according to the likelihood function. The method was developed with honey bees in order to detect the Age at Onset of Foraging (AOF), but can be used for the detection of other ontogenetic shifts in other central-place foraging insects.
