Looking for large and free set of ecological data
First time poster here. I am a current university student enrolled in a course that focuses on using R software to analyze biological data. For our final assignment, we have to process a set of data and run various tests, etc. on it. It is somewhat open ended as to what we do and how we do it, but I was wondering if anyone knew of any free sets of data that somehow relate to ecology, conservation biology, or something along those lines.
The data can be about anything (someone is working with baseball world series results over the years), but I’d love to work with data that relates to ecology (what I’m interested in). I’ve spent some time looking through research papers and websites, but would love to hear some more ideas.
Any and all suggestions would be much appreciated! Thanks!
