Package letsR

This package is being developed at LETS (Laboratório de Ecologia Teórica e Síntese) in UFG (Universidade Federal de Goiás, Brazil) as part of a larger project looking to integrate recent advances in macroecological data handling and processing. Its purpose is to make some of our commonly used but unavailable R functions available to the larger public. The package provides useful R functions for researchers in ecology and evolution.

The letsR package is in continuous development and suggestions are more than welcome!

We hope you enjoy it and find it useful.
