Most useful R package you've used to study ornithology related data

Recommended Posts

I'm compiling a list of relevant R packages in ornithology. I was wondering if you can provide one or more packages that you find relevant in these categories. 

  • Communication and acoustic analysis
  • Conservation
  • Genetics
  • Mark-recapture analysis
  • Movement ecology, navigation, telemetry, GPS, habitat use
  • Phylogeny
  • Physiology, phenology and life histories
  • Population dynamics

I welcome packages not only on CRAN.

For regression models I regularly use

to plot partial residual plots, calculate model coefficients and effect sizes, and extract pseudo R-squared values for anything that is not least squares. This is especially useful for regression models with lots of variables, especially multiple categorical variables and/or interactions.
