[R] Transposing Data Frame does not return numeric entries

 x <- read.table("LittleGarvin.csv", sep=",", header=TRUE)
y <- t(x)

chr [1:193, 1:288] "oligocha" "0" " 0" " 0" " 0" "0" ...
 - attr(*, "dimnames")=List of 2
  ..$ : chr [1:193] "X" "upwd1201" "upwd0502" "upwd0702" ...
  ..$ : NULL

x is a data frame with a whole bunch of numeric vectors I would like for the
rows and columns to be reversed == transposed but with the same attributes.
I am trying to feed the transposed data frame to metaMDS(vegan).  I am
stumped- sorry for the large attached file- I am at a loss.

Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are so
little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and make us
feel like gods. We are mammals, and have not exhausted the annoying little
problems of being mammals.
