[R] selecting only specific rows in R

Hi, I have a data frame with columns as follows: tree species
(independent variable) and several dependent variables (e.g. carbon,
nitrogen, phosphorus). Each row represents one tree sample. Some tree
samples are unique species in the data frame while other species were
replicated (i.e. rows 1,2,3 may be identical for the "tree species"
column but have different values for the other dependent variable
columns). I want to create a new data frame that selects only the tree
species that have replicates. In other words, I want to select all
rows that have at least one replicate in the column "tree species".
Ideas on how to write such a function?
