Resumo: In this paper we present ACTUS2, the second version of ACTUS (Analysis of Contingency Tables Using Simulation). ACTUS2 has many new features, including analysis of data in which dependencies that make some combinations of properties impossible are hypothesized. Because ACTUS2 explicitly simulates such hypotheses, it can be used without loss of accuracy to analyze small amounts of data in large tables with many zeros or very low frequencies. We illustrate these features with two studies of animal behavior: interactions of male individuals with other individuals in groups of captive, mature Triturus marmoratus pygmaeus (newts); and agonistic interactions between pairs of male juvenile Diplodus sargus (the sparid fish, white sea-bream). Both significantly frequent, and significantly infrequent, co-occurrences that had biologically meaningful interpretations were revealed.
