SDM survey, c. Microsoft Research Cambridge 2011Researchers from the Computational Ecology and Environmental Sciences  division of Microsoft Research Cambridge are carrying out a survey to help improve the way in which we develop software for species distribution modelling, and as part of wider research into how the software available to researchers affects the advancement of knowledge. It should take about 15 minutes of your time, and you don’t have to use SDM for your feedback to be useful.

It’s important that they get as many diverse responses as possible, so if you’ve used SDM at all then please do get involved. The survey closes on the 1st of July, so get your skates on! Visit the survey homepage to learn more, and take part in the survey.
