I'm working on a book on statistical/ecological modeling in R, to be published by Princeton University Press sometime in (?) 2007, that focuses on constructing maximum likelihood models. I have a draft up on my web site at .

  I would be very grateful if other R aficionados wanted to have a look and tell me what they thought (keeping the target audience in mind --- ecology students and researchers who know a bit of classical statistics and want to be able to do more by "rolling their own" in R)

Other useful links (googling "maximum likelihood R optim" ...)

  As is often the case, it would also help if you gave more detail about what you wanted to do -- probably the majority of modern statistical methods use "maximum likelihood" in one format or another ...
