The Pinkham-Pearson index of similarity has been evaluated by EPA as one of the more powerful tools for comparing community structure in its rapid bioassessment protocol. However, its use has been limited because the program that ran it, BioSim1, was only available in DOS format. A user-friendly version of BioSim2 is now available in a Java format that can run on Windows, Mac OS, Linux, or any computer operating system that supports Java v1.4 or higher.
