Training tool for biodiversity analysis

Trees in a Kalahari landscape

The ELDIS Manuals and Toolkits site has alerted us to an online guide and software for the analysis of biodiversity. Tree diversity analysis: a manual and software for common statistical methods for ecological and biodiversity studies provides a practical foundation for training in statistical methods for ecological and biodiversity studies. Produced by the World Agroforestry Centre, the guide is aimed at scientists and students analysing tree diversity data, but can be used for a wider range of organisms, for different hierarchical levels of biodiversity and for a variety of environments. The manual also includes a software programme capable of performing all the statistical analyses described in the manual. The software is available both on CD and for online download.
