The rapid present-day development of science has its major impediment in the distribution and interpretation of data. Journal publications are so limited with respect to volume and the number of figures that they usually do not allow the reader to understand, where the border lies between the results and their interpretation. This is especially important in ecology. In view of this consideration, this homepage is an experiment with the electronic publication of the results, in parallel with the routine scientific publication. Primary data, which in routine publications are usually obscured by the selection and mathematical processing, here are available for analysis and interpretation. This homepage allow step-by-step tracing of an investigation with simultaneous access to the rich illustrative and additional material.
