R Package : bioindic

Bioindic is a freeware software for R platform ( designed to perform statistical analyses of ecological and paleoclimatological indicators (pollen, diatoms, tree-rings, foraminifera ...). Most of the functions useful for dealing with fossil assemblages and tree-ring data (dendroclimatology) are implemented.

Main statistical analyses are transfer functions (analogues, PLS, neural network, ...), principal component analyses, time-series analyses, cluster and discriminant analyses, response functions (of tree-growth). Several of these analyses have build-in bootstrap assessment of uncertainties. The software has been developed by Joël Guiot and Yves Gally (CEREGE, CNRS).
