toolStability: Tool for Stability Indices Calculation

Tools to calculate stability indices with parametric, non-parametric and probabilistic approaches. The basic data format requirement for 'toolStability' is a data frame with 3 columns including numeric trait values, genotype,and environmental labels. Output format of each function is the dataframe with chosen stability index for each genotype. Function "table_stability" offers the summary table of all stability indices in this package. This R package toolStability is part of the main publication: Wang, Casadebaig and Chen (2023) <doi:10.1007/s00122-023-04264-7>. Analysis pipeline for main publication can be found on github: <>. Sample dataset in this package is derived from another publication: Casadebaig P, Zheng B, Chapman S et al. (2016) <doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0146385>.
