New webMathematica site: www.eco-tools.net


Greetings,

I just wanted to let people know about a new webMathematica website I am 
developing that makes basic (and ultimately, more advanced) calculation 
tools for ecology and conservation biology available, free, to a global 
audience (i.e., in particular, conservation practitioners in developing 
countries who have limited access to software and training).

www.eco-tools.net

It just has some basic tools right now (timeseries autocorrelation, 
ordination, life history matrix calculations, etc.). I am seeking 
funding to develop it properly.

One of the key features of the site is that all code is open source -- 
each module has a fully-annotated notebook which autosaves as the exact 
package that performs the calculations. I mention this just in case any 
of you code wizards are stuck on a rainy Sunday afternoon with nothing 
to do, and fancy critiquing the coding efforts of an enthusastic 
ecologist. I'm sure there are mistakes and sub-optimal procedures 
scattered throughout. You would, literally, be doing the world a favor.

Anyway, I hope you approve of the idea of the site, and you should know 
that any cooments or suggestions are more than welcome.

Thanks
