Applications in R programming for Ecology and Natural Resources

R statistical software is a free tool that is widely-used for research in ecology, natural resources, and other scientific fields. Through guided introductions we’ll explore topics in data presentation and tools for research and publication using R.  This workshop is for participants that have previously used R for analyses and can import data and install packages, but are looking to expand the use of R in their work.
