Welcome to BioDen’s documentation!¶
BioDen is a data normaliser and processor for files containing taxon biomass/density data for ecotopes. In general the input file of BioDen includes a list of records (rows in a table) that give species name, an abundance measure (biomass and/or density), a sample code, the surface sampled and the ecotope (see input example). This list is transformed to a table in which the rows represent species and the columns represent samples (see ouput examples). This table can serve as the input file for various software applications that conduct species community analyses.
