ADE4 is a software containing Data Analysis functions to analyse Ecological and Environmental data in the framework of Euclidean Exploratory methods. Since 2002, ade4 is a package of the R software, available for Windows, Mac OS, Linux and Unix OS.


ade4 is characterized by : - the implementation of graphical and statistical functions - the availability of numerical data - the redaction of technical and thematic documentation - the inclusion of bibliographic references






  • Introduction and use of multivariate analyses on data presenting structuring in groups of individuals
  • Introduction to multivariate analyses of relation between two data tables. Use and comparison of several classic methods of coupling.
  • Analyses of spatial data: storage, reading and manipulation. Mapping and methods of mutlivariate analyses with spatial data.
  • Introduction to methods of analyses of multiple data tables (CCA, co-inertia, K-Tabs,…)
  • Work in common, discussion and implementation of the methods of multivariate analyses with real data (from the ade4 package or from participants)


The course runs with lectures, practical and general discussions. Example data are provided in the package itself, and used to illustrate analyses in the lectures and practical, but own data can also be used.





1.5 ECTS
