Link dump

In the tradition of BioDiverse Perspectives (a site well worth watching – http://www.biodiverseperspectives.com/) I’m doing a mini link dump.

The first one is a fantastic series of webinars about scientific writing. Kristin Sainani is an engaging speaker, and even though she’s aiming these talks at chemists I think these talks are really useful.

I’m also a fan of Prof Andy Field who always provides amusing on-line lectures going over statistical basics (it’s always good to refresh)

Finally, for something different, FDiversity is a free software developed by Fernando Casanoves, Julio Di Rienzo y Laura Pla, that provides an easy way to quickly calculate functional diversity indices. I just found this program yesterday and already I think it’s going to useful and efficient way to generate the various indices.
