R Dataset / Package Stat2Data / MetabolicRate

Documentation

On this Picostat.com statistics page, you will find information about the MetabolicRate data set which pertains to Metabolic Rate of Caterpillars. The MetabolicRate data set is found in the Stat2Data R package. You can load the MetabolicRate data set in R by issuing the following command at the console data("MetabolicRate"). This will load the data into a variable called MetabolicRate. If R says the MetabolicRate data set is not found, you can try installing the package by issuing this command install.packages("Stat2Data") 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 MetabolicRate R data set. The size of this file is about 16,572 bytes.
