I am interested in using rarefaction to measure the bacterial diversity in
agricultural soil. I have characterized over 200 isolates taken from soil
and used Excel to calculate dissimilarity matrices. Now I would like to
use rarefaction to determine diversity (as shown by Torsvik, et. al.,1990,
AEM, v.56, p.776-781).
Does anyone know of a program available that I may download and/or
purchase that may help me? If so, how do I get info on it? I would
greatly appreciate any help.
