The following are nice GUIs for
implementing some community ecology
tests to examine structure in communities generated by competition,
facilitation or habitat structuring.
Software for Assessing the Reliability of Null Model Tests in Ecology, Ladau
and Ryan, 2008 MPower is a user-friendly
determining which null model tests in the application EcoSim (Gotelli and
Entsminger 2007) are reliable for analyzing your
ecological data. MPower is key for
ensuring that you draw
accurate inferences from your ecological data.
CoOccur, Software for
Robust Null Model Tests in Ecology, Ladau
et al., 2008
CoOccur is a user-friendly
program that implements robust null
model tests developed in Ladau and Schwager (2008). The tests allow reliable inferences
about interspecific interactions
for a wide array of presence-absence data sets.
