Nick has been investigating the modelling program STAR and has formatted a hub friendly version for use in our research into management of invasive animals and wildlife disease. This is likely to be very valuable in the investigation of horses and deer in the Australian Alps.
Read Nick's blogspot that contains Tidbits about programming in 'R'. Nick started the blog on the suggestion of one of the PhD students in our lab. Her complaint was that, despite the existence of useful resources like R-help and similar places online, she regularly came across relatively simple problems in R which had no easily accessible solutions or examples on the internet.
