HexSim is a free, versatile, multi-species, life history simulator
ideal for building models of animal and plant population viability,
interactions, and responses to disturbance. HexSim models are
spatially-explicit and individual-based, and HexSim individuals
can be assigned dynamic life history traits. HexSim also includes
a full genetics sub-model, making it a true eco-evo simulator.
