Here is a compilation of the answers I received to my question about
teaching materials for a biostats course based on R. I also added
resources I found searching the web:
Ron Burns sent links to Jack Weiss’ courses at University of North
Carolina, Chapel Hill
Richie Erickson pointed me to Stephen Cox’s course: Statistical
Applications in Environmental Toxicology
David Roberts pointed me to his own material at
Alain Zuur pointed me to datasets that accompany his books at
These are all real data sets (coming from PhD projects of commercial
projects). They are fully worked out in the case study chapters of:
Analysing Ecological Data (2007).
Zuur, AF, Ieno, EN and Smith, GM. Springer. 680 p.
Mixed effects models and extensions in ecology with R. (2009).
Zuur, AF, Ieno, EN, Walker, N, Saveliev, AA, and Smith, GM. Springer.
Dave Roberts pointed me to his lab pages:
“It's primarily for multivariate analysis in community ecology, bit does
also have some stuff on GLMs and GAMS in an ecological context.”
When time permits, Glen Sargeant teaches workshops on the use of R for
ecological data analysis. Folks who would like to schedule or attend a
workshop are welcome to contact him (gsargeant at usgs.gov).
David G. Rossiter has some notes on statistical methods in R up on the web:
I found course material by Stephen B. Cox to be helpful
