EstimateS - Statistical Estimation of Species Richness and Shared Species from Samples
Entry ID: EstimateS

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: EstimateS 7.5 is a free software application for Windows and Macintosh
operating systems that computes a variety of biodiversity functions,
estimators, and indices based on biotic sampling data. Some features require
species relative abundance data, others only species presence/absence data. A
comprehensive User's Guide is available online.

Major Features
* Rarefaction and species accumulation curves
* Species richness estimators and diversity indices
* Shared species estimation and biotic similarity indices, with estimators
* Importing data and exporting results
