One of the critical tools for data visualization today is the R statistical programming language. Especially in conjunction with the tidyverse software packages, R has become an extremely powerful and flexible platform for making figures, tables, and reproducible reports. However, R can be intimidating for first time users, and there are so many resources online that it can be difficult to sort through without guidance.
The focus in this course is learning to use ggplot2 to make a variety of visualizations and to polish those visualizations using tools within ggplot as well as vector graphics editing software.

Aquatic Ecology Research in a Pandemic
Date: September 9th -11th
Abstract Submission Deadline: July 20th
Join us for this year’s Aquatic SIG Annual Meeting, going virtual for the first time!
The coronavirus pandemic is among the most severe global issues that humanity has faced and innovative solutions for tracking, tracing, and controlling the speed of the virus are urgently required. Furthermore, the impact of worldwide lockdown measures and associated reductions in anthropogenic activity on biodiversity and the environment is unknown.
At this event, we will hear from aquatic ecology researchers that are utilising ground-breaking techniques to address these research gaps. Our keynote speakers have expertise across and beyond aquatic realms. These world-leading aquatic ecologists will discuss their recent findings and priorities for future research which will, as always, spark interesting discussions. Students and ECRs will have the opportunity to present their research through Twitter, join practical or Q&A sessions on R, and network with their peers. All workshops, talks, and discussion are spread over 3 days with plenty of breaks.
