Hi Bertram,

Yes, R is commonly used in ecological analysis and modeling.  Its 
basically an open-source port of S, but seems to be outpacing S now.  It 
is one of the big three that we currently have drivers for in Monarch 
(our analytical pipeline software).  The others are SAS and Matlab. 
Although we plan to expand those to other useful analysis 
platforms/models as well.


PS I sent this as well to the new seek-dev at ecoinformatics.org mailing 
list.  This is a new list that I've pre-populated with a few of the SEEK 
contributors who I thought would be interested in technical discussions 
as we head into SEEK development work.  Please let me know if you'd like 
to be removed from this list, or if you think someone else should be 
added.  Now that SEEK is funded, lets get the discussions rolling!  Thanks.

Current seek-dev list members are:
berkley at nceas.ucsb.edu
fvilla at zoo.uvm.edu
jbrunt at lternet.edu
