EcoSim is an interactive computer program for null model analysis in community ecology. EcoSim allows you to test for community patterns with non-experimental data. EcoSim performs Monte Carlo randomizations to create "pseudo-communities" (Pianka 1986), then statistically compares the patterns in these randomized communities with those in the real data matrix. These null model tests have wide applicability in both applied and basic ecology. -- This is a legacy copy of the software for archival purposes.
