Allometric models are stored in a remote repository located on GitHub located here. The user must install these models themselves using this function. This function clones the models repository within the allometric package directory and constructs a local dataframe containing the models. Refer to load_models() for information about loading the models dataframe.

If TRUE, model publication files are run locally, otherwise a previously prepared .RDS file is used as the models data.


If TRUE, models are re-downloaded from the remote repository.


If TRUE, print verbose messages as models are installed.


No return value, installs models into the package directory.
