The majority of my work involves persuading a computer to do something, mostly using R.

Out of this has come several open software packages that I created and maintain:


A CRAN package to make whizzy looking interactive bipartite graphs for exploring and visualising ecological networks.

bipartiteD3.gifUnder the hood it is essentially one long R function to write a bit of JavaScript, which can play nicely with the D3 framework in the latest version of RStudio.

It has a lot of shiny colour options, and should play nicely with the well established bipartite package.

This package is designed to work with incompletely sampled ecological bipartite networks. It does two jobs really.

Firstly, it includes a function to try and identify likely missing links, by fitting a whole suite of models

Secondly, it includes an easy way to do some basic sampling bootstrapping, to test how robust results are to sample sizes
