ANNOUNCEMENT: Wildlife ecology software on the internet
The Illinois Natural History Survey has opened an internet accessible
distribution site for wildlife ecology related software.
Software currently found at this site includes home range programs,
population-level analysis programs, and some general statistical
packages. Some programming language code is also available (i.e. Charles
Krebs' companion statistical programs from Ecological Methodology). Most
was written for pc-based platforms, but some may be compiled on other
We solicit programs within the following categories for inclusion at this
site: habitat analysis, diversity indices, simulation, general population
dynamics, capture/recapture, survival, energetics, statistics (commonly
used in wildlife ecology research), home range, telemetry, data
collection, and other wildlife ecology related categories that have not
occurred to us.
The site may be accessed via FTP at nhsbig.inhs.uiuc.edu
Dial-up access is not supported.
This software site continues to develop. As other similar sites come
online, we would appreciate being made aware of them. Any input is
welcome and should be sent to admin at nhsbig.inhs.uiuc.edu (Robert Diehl).
