16.2 Initial setup

First you should set up a folder on your computer to work in, and put the materials for this prac into it. There should be this file and a csv file of the distribution of the Desert Iguana ‘dipso_dist.csv’. You’ll also need to add the ‘climate_space_pars.csv’ file you used in module 9, and the microclimate data you unzipped from module 15 (from the files ‘microclim_aust.zip’ and ‘microclim_NAm.zip’).

Next, as in the previous pracs, open R-Studio and open a new script in which to paste and comment/modify the commands from this document as you go. And, as before, set the working directory to be the folder you created for the prac.
