Analysis of Environmental Data (ECO 634)

Lab Projects


The Analysis of Environmental Data Lab includes several projects corresponding to the major sections of the course.

Biostats R package

The biostats.R "package" is a compilation of functions written by Kevin McGarigal to support this and other offered statistics courses. This is not a real R package or library, but rather a compilation of R functions that must be sourced each time it is used. The biostats functions are described fully in the accompanying help file.

Projects (exercises)

Each of the projects is a self-contained exercise. The corresponding zip file contains all the files necessary to complete the exercise, including the detailed assignment, data sets, and R scripts.
