The JUICE program is a widely used non-commercial software package for editing and analyses of phytosociological data. It is continually developed since 1998 at the Masaryk University in Brno, Czech Republic. Program functions are fully described in English manual. It makes use of the previously-developed TURBOVEG software for entering and storing such data and it offers a quite powerful tool for vegetation data analysis. Various options include classification using COCKTAIL, divisive and aglomerative classification methods, calculation of interspecific associations, fidelity measures, average Ellenberg indicator values, preparation of synoptic tables, automatic sorting of relevé tables, and export of table data into other applications (text editors, table processors or mapping packages).
JUICE is optimised for use in association with TURBOVEG version 2 and 3 which is the most widespread database program for storing phytosociological data in Europe. However, three other import formats are available for other users.
JUICE supports connections with other mapping or classification software:
|TWINSPAN||-||table classification and sorting (freeware; JUICE installation package)|
|PC-ORD||-||automation of Cluster Analysis, fast sort of relevés by clusters (commercial software)|
|SYN-TAX||-||export of tables in SYN-TAX format files (commercial software)|
|CANOCO||-||export of Cornell condensed files (commercial software)|
|GIS programs||-||export of latitude, longitude coordinations from header data|
|R-PROJECT||-||automation of species respose curves and DCA, PCA & NMDS analyses|
