Rainbow Trout Respiration

This module aims to teach students how to analyze rainbow trout respirometry data using R Programming software. Designed specifically for use with data collected by students on an experiment measuring rainbow trout ventilation rate in response to differences in temperature and dissolved oxygen, the script herein provides methods which will allow students to both visualize and interpret these data.

This module was developed and tested in University of Idaho's Special Topics course (ENVS 404/504).
