CAP is our fully featured analyical package ideal for a very wide range of analytical
techniques. CAP guides you through the complexities of multivariate statistics, with
its Instant Assist feature and a very extensive Help system that contains all the
background to the methods that you could need. Includes a helpful worked example
too! Buy bundled with ECOM for a substantial discount!
The sister program to CAP, it complements CAP in providing analytical techniques to
detect, visualise and order relationships from both species data and environmental
variables. Used where you have environmental data as well as species data. Principal
methods: Canonical Correspondence Analysis (CCA), Redundancy Analysis (RDA),
Multiple Regression (MR) and Forward and Backward Stepwise Regression. (Discounts
are available for buying CAP & ECOM as a bundle).
Species Diversity and Richness II
A program to calculate and compare species diversity, estimate total species richness
and study patterns of abundance.
For handling circular statistics. Essential in behavioural studies, biogeography and
Fuzzy Grouping offers two main methods of data analysis, firstly, fuzzy c means and
secondly, fuzzy ordination, for dealing with imprecise data and likelihood of group
Population Estimation by Removal Sampling
A program to calculate the statistics from removal trapping experiments.
To analyse growth curves from length and/or weight data.
A program for estimating lethal or environmental concentrations using toxicity data.
For estimating population size of both closed and open populations with mark
recapture methods. Includes data simulation options to model experiments for open
and closed populations.
Density from Distance
Offering a range of analytical techniques commonly used by ecologists to estimate
animal and plant density from measurements of the distance between objects or from
a selected line or point to the objects.
Dynamica allows you to explore how animal populations and communities change
The program uses a long term data set from the Severn Estuary, England. Since 1980
