Cost: $20 for members, $40 for non-members
Taught by Graduate Students at CSU and UMontana (Caroline Blommel and Waldemar Ortiz-Calo)
In the introduction to R workshop for beginners, you will master the basics of utilizing R Studio for your data analyses. You will learn how to use RStudio as a calculator, understand basic data types, create and name vectors, and create and utilize basic computations with matrices. We will also introduce working with your data in R, including uploading data from different file types, assigning variables, storing data as data frames, and creating basic plots using base R. Finally, we will demonstrate how to fit general linear models using R packages and how to apply them to your research


R Introduction Workshop



R Advanced Workshop
April 14th; 1:00PM-5:00PM (3-4 hours)
Cost: $20 for members, $40 for non-members
Taught by Graduate Students at CSU and UMontana (Caroline Blommel and Waldemar Ortiz-Calo)
The advanced R workshop is intended for intermediate to advanced users who have mastered the basics of coding and are looking to transfer analyses from other programs (e.g., Excel, ArcGIS, Program MARK) to R. Here we will focus on data analysis techniques commonly used in ecological sciences. The first half of the workshop will focus on applying loop functions, basic spatial data manipulation and graphing, and basic spatial data analysis (i.e. home range and resource selection functions). The second half of the advanced workshop will cover manipulating mark-recapture data, and basic population analysis using open Cormack-Jolly-Seber models and simple closed population abundance estimators.
