Pre workshop instructions

Installing R

If you don't already have R set up with a suitable code editor, we recommend downloading and installing R and RStudio Desktop for your platform. Once installed, open RStudio and install the following packages. Simply paste these commands into your prompt.

Installing packages

install.packages("vegan", dependencies = TRUE)

Extra check for MacOS X users

In order to use the orditkplot() function you need a working Tcl/Tk installation. This may not be installed on Macs; to check run the following code


If you get errors and not a new window in which you can edit the biplot, then you probably don't have the correct setup on your system to use Tcl/Tk. Refer to the Tcl/Tk Issues section of the R Mac OS X FAQ.
