This three-day workshop will provide an introduction to R for fisheries scientists. R concepts and methods will be introduced through the use of a variety of fisheries examples. The focus of this course, however, will be on developing foundational skills in R that can be transferred to other situations, rather than teaching specific fisheries methods. Participants will test application of their knowledge with hands-on exercises using real fisheries data.
The first link below describes steps for installing R and RStudio on your laptop, which will be required to perform the course assignments. The second link briefly describes how to use RStudio. Please contact me with any questions.
- Install R and RStudio (complete before course) [The current versions of RStudio (now 0.98.XXX) and FSA (now 0.4.3) differ slightly from those shown here. However, the procedural steps have not changed.]
- Getting Started with RStudio (review before course)
- You should download and bring to the course all slides, R Handout Scripts, and associated data files below. Print all R Handouts (1.2mb) to bring to the course.
