Plymouth Routines In Multivariate Ecological Research (PRIMER) is a statistical package that is a collection of specialist univariate, multivariate, and graphical routines for analyzing species sampling data for community ecology. Types of data analyzed are typically species abundance, biomass, presence/absence, and percent area cover, among others. It is primarily used in the scientific community for ecological and environmental studies.

Multivariate routines include:

*grouping (CLUSTER)

*sorting (MDS)

*principal component identification (PCA)

*hypothesis testing (ANOSIM)

*sample discrimination (SIMPER)

*trend correlation (BEST)

*comparisons (RELATE)

*diversity, dominance, and distribution calculating

* Permutational multivariate analysis of variance (PERMANOVA)

Routines can be resource intensive due to their non-parametric and permutation-based nature. Programmed in the VB.Net environment.
