CANOCO — an extension of DECORANA to analyze species-environment relationships

  title={CANOCO — an extension of DECORANA to analyze species-environment relationships},
  author={Cajo J. F. ter Braak},
A common problem in community ecology and ecotoxicology is to discover how a multitude of species respond to external factors such as environmental variables, pollutants and management regime. Data are collected on species composition and the external variables at a number of points in space and time. Statistical methods available so far to analyze such data either assumed linear relationships or were restricted to regression analysis of the response of each species separately. To analyze the… CONTINUE READING
