LAD: Derive Leaf Angle Distribution (LAD) from Measured Leaf Inclination Angles

Calculate mean statistics and leaf angle distribution type from measured leaf inclination angles. LAD distribution is fitted using a two-parameters (mu, nu) Beta distribution and compared with six theoretical LAD distributions. Additional information is provided in Chianucci and Cesaretti (2022) <doi:10.1101/2022.10.28.513998>.
