Web Sites (Miscellanea)

The R Project

Rante – The Italian R User Group


The R package lme4 – Fitting and analyzing generalized linear mixed models. The interest group R-sign-mixed-models provides information on mixed effect models and package lme4. Useful suggestions on the GLMM (with a focus on Ecology and Evolutionary Biology) in the following wiki.

The R package spatstat – Analyzing spatial point patterns. Other packages are available for the analysis of spatial data in R (see Task View: Analysis of Spatial Data)

The ggplot2 web site and book. Also, nice examples here (The R Graphics Cookbook).

Cross Validated is a question and answer site focusing on statistics and R.
