Turtle Mass Normality Tracker

The TMNT is a R Shiny App that can be used to calculate the Body Condition Index (BCI) of western pond turtles based on previously collected data (Hernandez-Gomez et al., unpublished). 

Enter the plastron length (mm) and mass (g) of your turtle to derive the BCI of your turtle. The app will also plot your turtle's BCI relative to that of our dataset.
