A new version of the software ParaDis (for Parasites Distribution) is
available at the site:
This sofware analyses the frequencies of hosts versus their parasite
load. It is based on the Negative Binomial Distribution. When the
frequency of zero-parasites is composite (false and true negatives), as
it frequently occurs in natural situations, the zero-Truncated Binomial
Distribution is also implemented. In both cases maximum likelihood
method is used. A program allows to compare the aggregation of several
observed distributions.
