I wrote a post recently on visualising these interactions when variables are continuous; in that instance, I computed the effect of X on Y when the […]
A quick note here to say that I shall be helping my PhD supervisor, Luc Bussière, teach a week-long workshop entitled ‘Advancing in R’ at the SCENE field station (on the bonny, bonny banks of Loch Lomond) in December. The course is aimed at biologists who have a basic to moderate knowledge of using R […]
