Allometry figure with R and ggplot2

A simple guide to plotting a metabolic allometry figure with example scaling data and code. This web page was created based on using the blogdown and Hugo packages to publish an R Markdown document. Markdown is a simple formatting syntax for authoring HTML, PDF, and MS Word documents. For more details on using R Markdown see http://rmarkdown.rstudio.com. You can embed an R code chunk like this: Making a figure demonstrating the metabolic allometry of social insect colonies # loading libraries library(ggplot2) library(scales) library(gridExtra) # Importing the raw data # Doing this with dput() on a data set I previously assembled instead of making you import a separate data file.
