Biodiverse is a tool for the spatial analysis of diversity using indices based on taxonomic, phylogenetic and matrix-based (e.g. genetic distance) relationships, as well as related environmental and temporal variations. Biodiverse supports four processes: (1) linked visualisation of data distributions in geographic, taxonomic, phylogenetic and matrix spaces; (2) spatial moving window analyses including richness, endemism, phylogenetic diversity and beta diversity; (3) spatially constrained agglomerative cluster analyses; and (4) randomisations for hypothesis testing. Biodiverse is open-source and supports user developed extensions. It can be used both through a graphical user interface (GUI) and through user written scripts.
