isotracer: Isotopic Tracer Analysis Using MCMC

Implements Bayesian models to analyze data from tracer addition experiments. The implemented method was originally described in the article "A New Method to Reconstruct Quantitative Food Webs and Nutrient Flows from Isotope Tracer Addition Experiments" by López-Sepulcre et al. (2020) <doi:10.1086/708546>.
