From the reviews:“This book offers not only the theoretical background to analyse and interpret compositional data, but also the R support and guidance for the compositions package. The book is organised in 7 chapters. … The book is built in an accessible manner for undergraduates and postgraduates alike and offers an all in one overview of the analysis of compositional data in R.” (Irina Ioana Mohorianu, zbMATH, Vol. 1276, 2014)
