ECOLOGICAL METHODOLOGYVersion 7.0 (October 2009)What’s new in version 7.0? We have compiled all the programs from Ecological Methodology (2nd ed.) in Delphi 7 and Lahey Fortran LF Express 7.1 for compatibility with all the current Windows systems including Windows XP and VISTA, so that they will install and run on any Windows based system. In addition to correcting a few minor errors that were found in Version 6 of these programs, we have provided an improved copy/paste capability from EXCEL to data grids, and improved error trapping and error messages within each program. We increased data input limits for most programs, and the help screens for each program (available as RTF files in a subdirectory) now have an option to print. The total number of procedures is 86. Five programs have been added to the material described in the book Ecological Methodology (1999). Screenshots. Help screens for all programs for quick reference of the details of program assumptions and equations. These are a synopsis of the material covered in the textbook and are available as RTF files.
