**Getting started with R, data manipulation, graphics and statistics**

Students and researchers in the environmental sciences require a wide range of quantitative skills in analytical and data processing software, including R, geographic information systems (GIS) and the processing of remotely sensed data. There is increasingly a need to ensure transparency of data processing supported by statistical analyses to justify conclusions of scientific research and monitoring for management and policy. This site is a brief introduction to techniques for data organisation, graphics and statistical analyses.

Site content has been developed by researchers and students from the School ofÂ Biological, Earth and Environmental Sciences and the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of New South Wales, Australia.
