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.
is no longer distributed from here :(
