??nfnGroupedData (not nfnGroupdata) gives some information, and tells you,
that it is related to package nlme. This package is one of the most useful
and has a good documenting book (Pinheiro/Bates), but the groupedData
concept is more confusing than helpful. I only started to understand lme and
friend until I had noted that it works without grouped data.

So better consider CO2 a simple data frame of example data, with historical
decoration. I suggest you start with 

CO2 <- as.data.frame(CO2)
