Wolfram language instead of "R" for maths & maps coding?

GROUPS:

Hi all. apologies if this is covered; it's very hard to search for "R"!!

Quick one: incredibly excited about WL, never used WM and only recently started learning to code in R for fisheries statistics modelling, especially for maps. My question is: can someone who knows about R and WM please tell me how much overlap there is, how easy it would be for an R novice to become a mathematica/language novice, and especially whether it's possible to import or transcode R functions, e.g. I'm currently using Boosted Regression Trees so I'd love to be able to do everything quickly & more easily in WL if possible now, or in the future.

Thanks. Sorry that this is quite basic, I'm still getting to grips with the Wolfram suite.

This is a must read in any case: Why Would a Mathematica User Care about R?
