An R Companion for the Handbook of Biological Statistics

Salvatore S. Mangiafico

About the Author of this Companion

I have tried in this book to give the reader examples that are both as simple as possible, and that show some of the options available for the analysis.  My goal for most examples is to make things comprehensible for the user without extensive R experience.  The reader should realize that these goals may be partially frustrated either by the peculiarities in the R language or by the complexity required for the example.


I am neither a statistician nor an R programmer, so all advice and code in the book comes without guarantee.  I’m happy to accept suggestions or corrections.  Send correspondence to mangiafico@njaes.rutgers.edu.
