Simulate population trajectories over space and time with dynamic functions.


Simulating shifts in species populations is an important part of ecological management. Species respond to spatial and temporal changes in the landscape resulting from environmental phenomena, managerial actions or anthropogenic activities. This data is crucial for modelling, however, current software that incorporates this information has limited flexibility, transparency, and availability. steps extends the features found in existing software and accepts common spatial inputs that are derived from many other existing software packages.

A simulation is run on a landscape using population dynamics functions contained in a population_dynamics object. habitat_dynamics_functions can also be added to the simulation to modify the habitat during a simulation.
