Protea-causal-analysis

This repository contains an R notebook and associated files (including data) used to illustrate how the Rubin causal model helps to understand what we can (and can't) infer about causal relationships from observational data in ecology and evolutionary biology. The data are drawn from Carlson et al. (Annals of Botany 117:195-207; 2016 (doi: [https://dx.doi.org/10.1093/aob/mcv146])).
