Introduction

Together with Prof. Paul Esker of the University of Costa Rica, San Jose, we produced a workshop for the 2015 APS meeting in Pasadena, CA on introductory multivariate statistics in R.  The topics covered included:

  1. Classical ordination methods; Principal Components Analysis and Principal Coordinates Analysis
  2. Hierarchical and non-hierarchical cluster analyses
  3. Linking cluster analysis and ordination
  4. Multivariate hypothesis testing using discriminant analysis and MANOVA

This page provides access to the R program scripts, data files and web pages for each session of the workshop generated using R Markdown.
