Background and Motivation

The AmP collection is an important source of energetic and ecological (referenced) data, and implied eco-physiological properties.

The AmP parameters can be exported into Matlab as allStat.mat and visualized easily using AmP tool functions. However, R also offers opportunities for visualizing and exploring parameters.

Here we present two methods for importing AmP parameters into R workspace. One uses web-scraping (with rvest package, but accuracy is limited to the html-printed decimals), and the other works directly with allStat.mat.
