[R] replace values in data frame

Hi all,

I have a three columned list that I have imported into R. The first column is a plot (ex. Plot1), the second is a species name (ex ACERRUB) and the third a numeric value. I want to replace some of the second column names with other names (for example replace ACERRUB with ACERDRU). The original and replacement values are in separate lists (not vectors), but I can't seem to find the right function to perform this. The replace function seems to only want to work with numbers.

Any clues?
