CB doctoral candidate Marcus Beck has created an R-centric blog to highlight some tips and tricks he’s learned over the years. The focus is broad but he hopes to communicate some useful techniques using programmatic methods for data acquisition, organization, and analysis. He’s posted recent topics on data mining from the internet and modeling with different correlation structures. We encourage those of you that use R to head on over and have a look at some of his posts!
We are always in search of new blogs and strongly encourage graduate students to submit blog contributions. Topics can be wide-ranging, so long as they are relevant to Conservation Biology. Check out our submission page for the full range of topics and contact information for submission. Also, cross-posts are welcome if you manage an independent blog.
Here’s to a productive Spring semester!
