Theory, Examples & Exercises
Teacher: David Zelený, Institute of Ecology and Evolutionary Biology, National Taiwan University, Taiwan
Planned for winter semester 2016 (105-1)
The class will be focused on the use of R for analysis of multivariate ecological data. It is meant to be a continuation of EEB5083(B44 U1950) Numerical Methods in Community Ecology (群聚生態之分析方法), but oriented more practically and limited purely on the use of R (I expect, at least partly, students to gain their theoretical knowledge in Numerical Methods in Community Ecology or other courses). Before signing for this course, student should have also elementary experience with R program (gained by self-study or by attending other classes, such as EEB5082 (B44U1940) Introduction to R for Ecologists (R語言在生態學的應用)). In case that enrolled students have no experience with using of R program, I will at the beginning insert one class devoted to “simple guide to R”, which should ensure that everybody will have basic ability to master R program for the purpose of this class.
