Dear all,

I have just uploaded a package to CRAN a new package called 'adehabitat'.
This package is intended for ecologists who want to analyse the use of 
space by animals.
Many functions currently used in this field are available to
highlight habitat selection by animals (selection ratios, ENFA, habitat 
suitability maps
with the algorithm DOMAIN or Resource Selection Functions)
or to describe the movements and area used in radio-tracking studies 
(kernel or
minimum convex polygon home range, computation of travel speed and turning 
ASCII raster maps exported from Arcview can also be imported, and basic GIS 
are available (e.g. spatial join, computation of buffers).

The package comes with a pdf documentation file which
contains an overview of the main classes of maps available
in the package.

Questions, comments and suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Here is the description file of the package:
