The good news is I have a fascinating data set.

In particular I need some help understanding model selection, and all the caveats that go along with it.

I'm not a stats student I'm a geography student.

I've got a dataset I collected from destructive sampling of trees, and I basically want to explore some measurement parameters and how they can be used to predict total biomass, and total foliar biomass. I'm familiar with R, I've done some linear and robust regressions on this dataset but as I have nobody to guide me I need someone to come in and give me some advice.

$40/hour we can do it over skype?
