management system for vegetation data

web templates free download
TURBOVEG 3 is a program designed for storing, selecting and exporting vegetation plot data (relevés). It also includes EXPERT, a tool to classify vegetation plots according to expert rules. Data can be imported manually (individual relevés or vegetation tables) or automatically (import of data files; e.g. in Excel format).
Relevés can be selected by choosing one or several of the header data attributes or by choosing a species or a combination of species. 
Several filters are available to export the selected relevés to enable further analysis with various programs (e.g. MS Excel, JUICE, QGIS, R).
