Also, the proportional odds ordinal logistic model is a generalization 
of Wilcoxon-Kruskal-Wallis test.   It can easily handle interactions in 
the model.  See the lrm function in the Design package or the polr 
function in the MASS package.  For a tutorial on ordinal logistic 
regression in ecology (using lrm), see
