What is and what can I do with it? R is freely available software for Windows, Mac OS and Linux To download R in New Zealand: http://cran.stat.auckland.ac.nz/http://cran.stat.auckland.ac.nz/ What is R? A very simple programming language A place for you to input data A collection of tools for you to perform calculations A tool for producing graphics A statistics suite that can be downloaded on to any PC, Mac or Linux system A software package that can run on high performance computing clusters R is freely available software for Windows, Mac OS and Linux To download R in New Zealand: http://cran.stat.auckland.ac.nz/http://cran.stat.auckland.ac.nz/ What is R?

What is and what can I do with it? With R you can: Perform simple or advanced statistical tests and analyses e.g. standard deviation, t-test, principal component analysis Read and manipulate data from existing files e.g. tables in Excel files, trees in nexus files, data on websites Write data or figures to files e.g. export a figure to.pdf, export a.csv file Produce simple or advanced figures With R you can: Perform simple or advanced statistical tests and analyses e.g. standard deviation, t-test, principal component analysis Read and manipulate data from existing files e.g. tables in Excel files, trees in nexus files, data on websites Write data or figures to files e.g. export a figure to.pdf, export a.csv file Produce simple or advanced figures

What is and what can I do with it? http://dx.doi.org/10.1098/rspb.2014.0806 Figure 2. A reconstruction of the evolutionary history of carotenoid pigmentation in feathers. The likelihood that ancestors could display carotenoid feather pigments has been reconstructed using ‘hidden’ transition rates in three rate categories (AIC = 4002.5, 11 transition rates) [33]. The POEs (defined in Material and methods) for carotenoid feather pigmentation are identified by red circles. Branches are coloured according to the proportional likelihood of carotenoid-consistent colours at the preceding node. Solid purple points indicate species for which carotenoid feather pigments were confirmed present from chemical analysis; open black points represent those for which where carotenoids were not detected in feathers after chemical analysis. Supertree phylogeny from [21]. http://dx.doi.org/10.1098/rspb.2014.0806 Figure 2. A reconstruction of the evolutionary history of carotenoid pigmentation in feathers.

What does this guide cover? Part zero: Getting started Interacting with R Part one: Objects Vectors, Matrices, Character arrays Part two: Data manipulation Analysing data, T-test Part three: External data Reading data into R, ANOVA Part four: Packages and libraries Installing new packages into R Part five: Scripts Using pre-written code Part six: Logic (programming) Other functions in R Part zero: Getting started Interacting with R Part one: Objects Vectors, Matrices, Character arrays Part two: Data manipulation Analysing data, T-test Part three: External data Reading data into R, ANOVA Part four: Packages and libraries Installing new packages into R Part five: Scripts Using pre-written code Part six: Logic (programming) Other functions in R

Starting This guide will demonstrate the R Console (command-line input) for R 3.02 running in Windows 7. For Mac OS, R can be executed from terminal. For Unix, seek professional help… The only point of difference should be the initial starting of R and the visual appearance: Console commands will be the same for all operating systems.

Because R requires internet access to download packages, which can be complicated by a University proxy. I can’t guarantee that the proxy won’t be an issue. That’s why. Well that, and it will be good for you. #You have been using some of the basic functions that are packaged with R, and you have been either generating or importing datasets #Anyone can write a new function in R though, or make a dataset, and these functions and datasets can be bundled together into a package #R is modular, which means you can download and install new packages to give you access to new functions and/or datasets #There is an automatic and a manual method for installing packages. This guide will teach you how to manually install packages in R #Why the manual method you ask? Because R requires internet access to download packages, which can be complicated by a University proxy. I can’t guarantee that the proxy won’t be an issue. That’s why. Well that, and it will be good for you.

Department of Conservation Reference: 10039929 Photograph by Chris Smuts-Kennedy Grid of monitored stations How far does a Duvaucel's gecko travel after release? Methods: Record the grid coordinates of the station where the gecko is released Each day for three subsequent days measure the grid coordinates of the station where the gecko is found Calculate the distance between recorded stations 10 m by 10 m grid 1 m

62
#Step one: Set up the monitoring grid data for each day. 0 means that the gecko was not observed in that grid cell, 1 means that the gecko was observed in that grid cell. #Release day set.seed(1) d0=rep(0,100) d0[round(runif(1,min=0,max=100))]=1 day.zero=matrix(d0,ncol=10,nrow=10) #Day one check set.seed(2) d1=rep(0,100) d1[round(runif(1,min=0,max=100))]=1 day.one=matrix(d1,ncol=10,nrow=10) #Day two check set.seed(3) d2=rep(0,100) d2[round(runif(1,min=0,max=100))]=1 day.two=matrix(d2,ncol=10,nrow=10) #Day three check set.seed(4) d3=rep(0,100) d3[round(runif(1,min=0,max=100))]=1 day.three=matrix(d3,ncol=10,nrow=10) #Step one: Set up the monitoring grid data for each day. 0 means that the gecko was not observed in that grid cell, 1 means that the gecko was observed in that grid cell. #Release day set.seed(1) d0=rep(0,100) d0[round(runif(1,min=0,max=100))]=1 day.zero=matrix(d0,ncol=10,nrow=10) #Day one check set.seed(2) d1=rep(0,100) d1[round(runif(1,min=0,max=100))]=1 day.one=matrix(d1,ncol=10,nrow=10) #Day two check set.seed(3) d2=rep(0,100) d2[round(runif(1,min=0,max=100))]=1 day.two=matrix(d2,ncol=10,nrow=10) #Day three check set.seed(4) d3=rep(0,100) d3[round(runif(1,min=0,max=100))]=1 day.three=matrix(d3,ncol=10,nrow=10)

63
#Step two: Combine all of the grid data into one list. This will help us quickly analyse the data as a single batch. days=list(day.zero,day.one,day.two,day.three) #Step three: Create a matrix where we will store the grid locations for the gecko location, and calculate the daily distance. movement=matrix(0,ncol=3,nrow=length(days)) colnames(movement)=c("Easting","Northing","Displacement (m)") #Step four: Find the grid cell for the location of the gecko on each day and store that information in the movement matrix. for(i in 1:length(days)){ movement[i,1]=which(days[[i]]==1, arr.ind=TRUE)[1] movement[i,2]=which(days[[i]]==1, arr.ind=TRUE)[2] } #Step two: Combine all of the grid data into one list.

64
#Step five: Calculate the distance that the gecko travelled each day. for(j in 2:length(days)){ movement[j,3]=sqrt(((abs(movement[j,1]-movement[j- 1,1]))^2)+((abs(movement[j,2]-movement[j-1,2]))^2)) } #Step six: Plot the distance between each station where the gecko was found on each subsequent day. barplot(movement[,3],xlab="Day",ylab="Displament (m)",main="Gecko distance") #Step five: Calculate the distance that the gecko travelled each day. for(j in 2:length(days)){ movement[j,3]=sqrt(((abs(movement[j,1]-movement[j- 1,1]))^2)+((abs(movement[j,2]-movement[j-1,2]))^2)) } #Step six: Plot the distance between each station where the gecko was found on each subsequent day. barplot(movement[,3],xlab="Day",ylab="Displament (m)",main="Gecko distance")
