StageGrow is a single-species population-modeling program.
It has been written in Java for use on Mac OS X. StageGrow includes a stage-structured mode with up to five stages, a geometric growth model, an exponential growth model and a logistic growth model.
Some of the models use environmental stochasticity in the calculations. I found out that this has to do with random variables. This program is obviously meant for use in education and research. It's not your everyday, let's have-fun-with-science project.
- Geometric growth graphs
- Help files with explanations of equations and variables, and example runs for some of the models
- A logistic model with an environmental stochasticity parameter
The radio buttons that set which graph to display sometimes need to be selected twice in order to change the graph display.
