R Dataset / Package DAAG / frogs


On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the frogs data set which pertains to Frogs Data. The frogs data set is found in the DAAG R package. You can load the frogs data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("frogs"). This will load the data into a variable called frogs. If R says the frogs data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("DAAG") and then attempt to reload the data. If you need to download R, you can go to the R project website. You can download a CSV (comma separated values) version of the frogs R data set. The size of this file is about 12,680 bytes.

Frogs Data


The frogs data frame has 212 rows and 11 columns. The data are on the distribution of the Southern Corroboree frog, which occurs in the Snowy Mountains area of New South Wales, Australia.




This data frame contains the following columns:


0 = frogs were absent, 1 = frogs were present


reference point


reference point


altitude , in meters


distance in meters to nearest extant population


number of potential breeding pools


(number of potential breeding sites within a 2 km radius


mean rainfall for Spring period


mean minimum Spring temperature


mean maximum Spring temperature
