F-Diversity

FDiversity is a free software developed by Fernando Casanoves, Julio Di Rienzo y Laura Pla, to estimate and analyse indexes of functional diversity. It also includes tools to compare the estimated index among a set of conditions using a built-in linear model facility.

Mammalian herbivores can change the dynamics of plant communities, altering species diversity, dimensional structure and succession processes. These effects can, in turn, affect the diversity and activity of other herbivores, predators and parasites in a community (Lindroth 1989). The purpose of this guide is to contribute to the analysis of herbivore diet utilizing the micro-histological technique described by Dacar and Giannoni (2001).
