What is www.eco-tools.net?

www.eco-tools.net is a web-accessible means of performing commonly-needed and useful calculations in ecology and conservation biology. No special software is required, and all algorithms are transparent and based on standard references.

The current site is a prototype. The PVA tool comes closest to what I envisage for the site as a whole. www.eco-tools.net is intended to be an evolving resource based on input from the ecology and conservation community. Your comments, corrections and suggestions are welcome. See the Contributing link for details.

If you use an eco-tools module, please e-mail admin@eco-tools.net and tell us (as briefly as you can) what you used and why. It will help us develop the site!
