To account for likely differences between families in naturalization rates, we fitted a generalized linear mixed model, using
PROC NLMIXED in SAS10, with the
naturalization rate per genus (that is, the number of naturalized species in a genus as a proportion of the total number of introduced species in a genus) as the response
variable, a variable coding genera as containing at least one native species or not as a
fixed-effect predictor, and a variable coding for family as a random effect.

I would like to emulate or do something better than this PROC NLMIXED method using R, the methods were used in a 2002 Duncan and Williams nature publication. Any suggestions about how to proceed?
