About this book

This book provides practical instruction on the use of the R programming language to analyze spatial data arising from research in ecology and agriculture. The book is written in terms of the analysis of four data sets, two from ecology and two from agriculture. These data sets are available online. It guides readers through the analysis of each of these data sets, including setting the research objective, designing the sampling plan, data quality control, exploratory and confirmatory data analysis, and drawing scientific conclusions. All of the R code described in the book is made available online.
