%X We present an all-inclusive software tool for dealing with the essential
core of mathematical and statistical calculations in plant growth
analysis. The tool calculates up to six of the most fundamental
growth parameters according to a purely 'classical' approach across
one harvest-interval. All of the estimates carry standard errors
and 95% confidence limits. The tool is written in Microsoft® Excel
2000 and is available free of charge for use in teaching and research
from www.aob.oupjournals.org article supplementary data. © 2002
