Reading through this forum has been very informative, but I am afraid I 
have a rather basic question. I am new to both R and generlized models 
(I have experience running linear mixed models with SPSS).

I have been playing with the glm function in R (using Faraway as my 
guide), but this forum seems to focus on glmer and lmer. What is the 
difference between running mixed effects models using glm and glmer?
