EndNote is a citation management program that helps you organize the citations you find when doing research. It also lets you quickly insert these citations into your paper or report, converts them into any of thousands of different styles with a click or two, and creates a bibliography for you, saving hours of time when writing papers.

Ordination techniques are valuable to the social sciences. They offer useful ways to explore and distill variation that is distributed across many variables into reduced dimensional space. They are useful for exploring relationships within large multivariate datasets as site and species relationships can be plotted in two and three dimensions.
