    The user's manual describes the use of the NEWILD computer program. NEWILD is software developed by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Northeastern Research Station as part of the NED project, and ongoing effort to develop software tools to support Ecosystem Management decision making. NEWILD can be used to determine which of the 338 species of vertebrates in New England may be found in particular habitats, or which habitats are preferred or utilized by a particular species of wildlife. The object of this program is to assist in the access and evaluation of the information presented in the Species/Habitat matrices developed by Richard DeGraaf, Deborah Rudis, Mariko Yamasaki, William Leak, and John Lanier (GTR-NE-108, GTR-NE-144). Some of the text from these publications have been incorporated into the hypertext portion of this program. NEWILD was designed for use in conjunction with these publications. A diskette containing the NEWILD program is included with this manual. The program requires Windows 3.1 or later to operate.
