The publication of smatr 3 – an R package for estimation and inference about allometric lines, by David Warton, Remko Duursma, Daniel Falster and Sara Taskinen, marks our twelfth published application paper – and, like the first eleven, it’s available for free.

Methods in Ecology and Evolution’s applications are intended to provide a citable description of new methods and techniques in ecology and evolution, with the intention of promoting and maximising the uptake of these new approaches. The papers we’ve already published span a huge range of methodologies, providing new tools for testing the tempo of evolution in phylogenetic trees, assessing the effectiveness of forest carbon conservation, and performing a broad array of spatial statistical analyses – to name but a few.

You can view the full range of applications on the MEE website.
