Hello Andy,

I've been using raster to play with WordlClim 2.0 and it works fine. For 

# Download 2.5' arc P data of worldclim 2.0
# The file is 68.5 MB so it takes some time to download
download.file(P_url, destfile="wc2.0_2.5m_prec.zip")

#  Generate a stack object  with all monthly precipitation layers
P_filenames<- paste("wc2.0_2.5m_prec_", c(paste(0,1:9, sep=""), 11,12), 

prec2.5<- stack(P_filenames)

# Compute annual precipitation as a raster layer
P2.5<- sum(prec2.5)

# etc.
