8 Week 5: Spatial Statistics

In this week’s computer lab, we will test for spatial autocorrelation in genetic and landscape data. Along the way, we will learn how to calculate pairwise distances in R, how to define spatial weights, and how to work with two basic R object types: S3 vs. S4 objects.

Note: Weeks 1 - 8 (Basic Topics) form a streamlined program to aimed at building your R skills. These skills are required for the Advanced Topics.
