ANNOUNCING: Density from Distance

The latest ecological software from PISCES.

DfD (Density from Distances) is a Windows 95/98 program that offers a
range of analytical techniques commonly used by ecologists to estimate
animal and plant density using plotless methods. This program can easily
be used by both students and professional ecologists.
The program includes a data simulation module that allows the accuracy
and efficiency of the different methods to be assessed. This is
particularly useful for ecological teaching because it allows students
to quickly simulate and explore a range of methods within a familiar
Windows setting.

Methods available within Density from Distances for density estimation
include:
* Line transect methods such as the Fourier series estimator for
continuous distance data.
* The calculation of density when distances are recorded within set
bands from the line.
* Point transect estimators for a number of models.
* Closest individual, nearest neighbour and ordered-distance estimators.
* The Kendall-Moran estimator.
* Angle-order methods

Density from Distances offers
* An attractive user interface.
* Extensive help system.
* Easy data importation.
* High quality graphical output.

and is ideal for
* Community ecology research.
* Undergraduate teaching.
* Applied ecologists. 
* Ecologists with limited computer experience.
