Increasingly scientists are sharing their code on public repositories like GitHub, SourceForge, and RForge. This sharing necessitates the need for scientists to write readable code with helpful documentation. rOpenSci is a collaborative created to foster better coding in R, including writing a style guide on coding in R and peer-reviewing packages. Scientists should consider adopting these style guides to facilitate better interactions with people using or modifying their code.


On March 30 we hosted our second BioBlitz at Quiet Waters Park. Over 40 people came to this event, and helped us tally over 170 species in the park. We had a lot of surprises including nesting owls, river otters, and tagged butterflies.


In this post you’ll find preliminary results from our movement ecology review.


In this post you’ll find an introduction to our movement ecology review (on the way!) and a survey for movement ecologists.


In this post you’ll find the complete results of our survey about R packages for movement analysis and tracking data processing.
