R code

We rely on R for most of my statistical analyses. Given the computer- and simulation-heavy analyses that we conduct on macroecology and evolutionary biology, we do some R coding to handle, manage, and analyze my data. Here, we provide some links for some of our R codes

letsR package

Bruno Vilela and Fabricio Villalobos created an R package to ease our macroecological analyses. Luckily enough, we published it as an application note in Methods in Ecology and Evolution (see my publications page). The package can be downloaded from the CRAN repository. Also, you can find the most up to date version of the package on its github page

I also have a personal github page with some R codes, although a bit out of date in several parts.
