Datamine Free data! Free software! Free images! The datasets below are compiled from published sources and from researchers who are generous enough to share their unpublished or raw measurmements.

SOFTWARE free & open source programs for data analysis
imageJ image analysis software from NIH
R powerful statistics and general computing software. Get R Studio & TinnR while you're at it.
Kinovea video analysis software, excellent for biomechanics
Mesquite phylogenetic analysis. You might also try Mr. Bayes, Beast, PAUP, and MacClade
