Generating ANOVA-like table from GLMM using parametric bootstrap

[UPDATED: I modified a bit the code of the function, now you do not need to pass as character the random effect terms] This article may also be found on RPubs: http://rpubs.com/hughes/63269 In the list of worst to best way to test for effect in GLMM the list on http://glmm.wikidot.com/faq state that parametric bootstrapping is … Continue reading Generating ANOVA-like table from GLMM using parametric bootstrap

Generalized Linear Mixed Models in Ecology and in R

I had a nice workshop two weeks ago in Tübingen (south-germany) concerning Generalized Linear Mixed Models (GLMM) in R. The course was given by two ecologist: Dr. Pius and Fränzi Korner-Nievergelt  that spend now half of their time doing statistical consulting (http://www.oikostat.ch/navigation_engl.htm). Nice reference concerning GLMMs are: the 2009 Bolker paper (paper),  the 2007 book … Continue reading Generalized Linear Mixed Models in Ecology and in R

Computing R square for Generalized Linear Mixed Models in R

R square is a widely used measure of model fitness, in General Linear Models (GLM) it can be interpreted as the percent of variance in the response variable explained by the model. This measure is unitless which makes it useful to compare model between studies in meta-analysis analysis. Generalized Linear Mixed models (GLMM) are extending … Continue reading Computing R square for Generalized Linear Mixed Models in R
