Summary
Abstract: Community Analysis Program (CAP) searches for structure in ecological community
data. It is easy to use, affordable, with quality output. It offers analytical
techniques commonly used by community ecologists, and researchers in other
fields such as palaeontology, archaeology and the social sciences. Programs
using these techniques have long been available, but they are often difficult
to use since they were written for mainframe computers or PCs using DOS, often
with little or no graphical output. In CAP, data can be organised using
standard programs such as Excel, and the output is displayed, exported and
printed using standard Windows techniques. It is particularly useful for
ecological teaching because it allows students to quickly enter data, try
different transformations, and explore a wide range of methods within a
familiar Windows setting.

Version 2.0, released 14/5/02, includes: Maximum size of data set increased
from 500 samples x 500 species to 1000 x 1000 - even for TWINSPAN and DECORANA
calculations. Improved chart editing and labelling functions; graphs can be
exported in .BMP, .EMF, .JPEG, .PCX and .PNG file formats, and data series as
plain text, XML, HTML tables or Excel format. Automatically checks for, and
removes, blank cells and zero-sum rows on opening a data set. Rows or columns
can be deselected, allowing you to work with only part of the data set. Help
system and manual completely revised, now include a Worked Example. New
ordination method, Species Filtering, has been added.
