ecocomDP: Tools to Create, Use, and Convert ecocomDP Data

Work with the Ecological Community Data Design Pattern. 'ecocomDP' is a flexible data model for harmonizing ecological community surveys, in a research question agnostic format, from source data published across repositories, and with methods that keep the derived data up-to-date as the underlying sources change. Described in O'Brien et al. (2021), <doi:10.1016/j.ecoinf.2021.101374>.
