Playing with the datasets

This is the page where you get to play with some of the data I have accumulated during my research.

The data analysis uses The R Project for Statistical Computing.


Lacistema aggregatum holotypes: distribution and timeline

This dataset examines the distribution and timeline of Lacistema aggregatum holotype discoveries from 1772 to 1950.
