A colleague has just passed me this interesting


"Vegan: R functions for vegetation ecologists"

"Vegan package is intended to help vegetation ecologists and
other community ecologists to use R. It is not a completely
self-contained package, but it complements other R functions.  
At this first stage, vegan implements some of the
functionality of Peter Michin's DECODA which is the only
program to perform non-metric multidimensional scaling (NMDS) like
recommended in community ecology (Vegetatio 71, 145-156;
1987). NMDS itself can be run with function isoMDS (library
MASS), but vegan adds some supporting functions "
