Quantitative Parasitology 3.0


This software provides statistical tools to analyse and compare the highly aggregated (right-skewed) frequency distributions exhibited by parasites. However, it can handle only monotypic (single species) infections. The first version came out in 2000 and we stopped distributing it in 2019.  We recommend the more advanced QPweb that is capable to handle  different species or separate sexes of parasites within a single sample.


QP3.0 can be downloaded from here

(not recommended any more)

CAUTION! We do not update QP3.0 any more but we recommend using QPweb. The "aggregation indices" module of this version does not work under Win10, only under former versions of Windows (like Win7). In spite of that, we still receive some requests for QP3.0 and, therefore, we make it available from here. Find a brief guide here.
