-English written text communicating your results. It should have a structure of standard (although very short) scientific paper, **up to 5 manuscript pages long** (including everything except an R code - R code should be added as an Appendix ​ after the text). Definition of //​manuscript page// is: size A4, with __double line spacing__, __size of text 12pt__, margins around 2.5 cm (it looks actually pretty sparse, but this is standard manuscript format if you submit paper to a journal; the wide inter-line spaces are there for comments, notes and corrections). Text should be separated into traditional chapters (Abstract, Introduction,​ Methods, Results, Discussion, References). In the Introduction,​ briefly introduce the theoretical background of the study and the question you are asking. In the Methods part introduce the dataset and in detail describe the methods used for its analysis. In the Results, report all relevant results you got, and discuss them in the Discussion. Don't forget to cite relevant literature and cite them in the Reference section. Include all important figures (like map of the study area, schema of sampling design, ordination diagrams, cluster dendrograms etc.) and tables (if necessary). If some friend or colleagure provided you with data or help, include her/him in the Acknowledgements. Let's make it like a scientific game - once (may be soon) you may need to write a real paper, and this experience may come handy.+English written text communicating your results.

 Additionally to the text above, **include also commented R code as an Appendix**. Best if you can format the R code using the <ff Courier>​Courier New font style</​ff>​. Number of pages with R code is not limited, but try to keep it short. R code must be included, but does not need to be reproducable (I suppose you will not include data you used). Additionally to the text above, **include also commented R code as an Appendix**.
