[R] Transposing Data Frame does not return numeric entries

I have a species as rows and sites as columns matrix. I would like to tranpose this matrix so that I can do an NMDS analysis with the vegan package. I have used

y <- t(x)

and it indeed transposes the matrix, but it changes the whole make up

chr [1:193, 1:288] "oligocha" "0" " 0" " 0" " 0" "0" ...

the original matrix is numeric when I use str(x). I would post the data but it is large for a mailing list. I have read help and I can't figure it out.
Let's not spend our time and resources thinking about things that are so
little or so large that all they really do for us is puff us up and make us
feel like gods. We are mammals, and have not exhausted the annoying little
problems of being mammals.
