Introduction to R Workshop

IAGLR's 58th Annual Conference on Great Lakes Research

R is an extremely powerful and versatile data analysis package that is freely available for download off the world-wide web. R rivals and, in some cases, surpasses commercial statistical software and graphing packages. Thus, wide adoption of R by managers and biologists in the field of natural resources and ecology may result in substantial cost-savings to natural resource agencies. Students who complete this course will understand the benefits of using R and will be able to more easily transition to using R from other software packages. Topics will include: interactive calculations, importing/exporting data, built-in and userdefined functions, graphing, and statistical analyses (linear regression, t-test, randomization, ANOVA, basic nonlinear optimization).
