Hi Isaac,
I am sure you will get lots of answers to this. Here is one using the dplyr
package.
Assuming that your data frame is called 'a', then
library(dplyr)
b <- dplyr::group_by(a,plot) %>% dplyr::summarise( mean(lai) )
b
# A tibble: 4 x 2
plot `mean(lai)`
<int> <dbl>
1 104 243.
2 105 212.
3 106 223.
4 108 212
HTH,
Eric
