Full description

Compete © is a spatial individual-based modelling package facilitating study of population and community dynamics and evolution in assemblages of sessile modular organisms competing for space. The kernel of its operation is a probabilistic cellular automaton, but with additional functions for recruitment, mortality, dispersal and disturbance. The model uses synchronous updating of the landscape.

Lineage

The software provides for:

up to 40 species
landscapes up to 800 x 800 cells
metacommunities of up to 64 landscapes connected by dispersal
neighbour-specific growth rates for each species
species-specific recruitment rates
species-specific mortality rates
open and closed recruitment regimes
any network topology describing competitive outcomes among species
user-defined scenarios of disturbance
user-defined initial landscapes, including reading maps from file
single and Monte Carlo runs
a wide variety of graphical and data file output formats
open or toroidal (=periodic) boundary conditions
simulation of the non-spatial equivalent of any defined model structure as difference equations
