Welcome to the HexSim Project

HexSim is a free, versatile, multi-species life history simulator

that you can use to build models of animal and plant population

structure, dynamics, viability, and interactions. HexSim models

are both spatially-explicit and individual-based, and trait-based.



Develop PVA models

Impose stressor interactions

Evaluate landscape connectivity

Conduct source-sink analyses

Model competition and predation

Explore landscape genetics

Simulate disease dynamics

- And a great deal more -
