I’m Will Pearse – an ecologist / evolutionary biologist / R nerd. This blog describes my attempts to build up an R package filled with things I find interesting, in a shameless attempt to be like the phytools blog. I can’t promise it’ll be the sort of package you’d ever want to use, but hopefully you’ll find it interesting!
What’s with the name? I grew up in Bristol, where people commonly put ‘ard’ on the end of words. I would occasionally be called ‘Willard’, but it’s pronounced as if you were saying ‘will-eerd’ – hence the name of this blog!
