From CRAN you can install the package using:


Or the development version of gllvm from github with the help of devtools package using:


Getting started

For getting started with gllvm we recommend to read vignette Analysing multivariate abundance data using gllvm or introductions for using gllvm for ordination and for analysing species correlations.
