Models, tools, software

The Evolution and Ecology program has developed a collection of models, tools and software to conduct its research.

Catalogue of models, tools, and software

The Trait Ecology and Evolution (Plant) model

Responding to the need among vegetation researchers for a flexible toolbox for investigating the eco-evolutionary dynamics of vegetation, EEP co-developed the Plant model, a comprehensive software package for studying the ecology and evolution of plant communities. More

Framework for Eco-Genetic Modeling

The framework for eco-genetic modeling offers flexible tools for exploring the course and rates of multi-trait life-history evolution in natural populations. More

R Library for Estimating Fisheries-Induced Selection Pressures

The Working Group on Fisheries-Induced Evolution (WGEVO) of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) has developed a general framework for investigating eco-evolutionary changes in fish stocks and their utilities in terms of ecosystem services and for assessing the management implications of fisheries-induced evolution through Evolutionary Impact Assessments (EvoIAs). More

Large Community-Evolution Models (LCEMs)

The complexity and dynamical nature of community interactions make modelling a useful tool for understanding how biodiversity patterns in communities develop over time and how they respond to external perturbations. More

Tools for Assessing Incentive Mechanisms

Ensuring that common goods and open-access resources—everything from clean air and the global climate to the internet and civil security—are equitably and fairly available to everyone requires incentive mechanisms. More

Disease-Eradication Model

Despite modern medical interventions, infectious diseases continue to generate huge socio-economic losses. More


Catalogue of datasets

Database of Exploited Fish Stocks

The Working Group on Fisheries-Induced Evolution (WGEVO) of the International Council for the Exploration of the Sea (ICES) has developed a general framework for investigating eco-evolutionary changes in fish stocks and their utilities in terms of ecosystem services and for assessing the management implications of fisheries-induced evolution through Evolutionary Impact Assessments (EvoIAs). More

Database of Quantified Food Webs

Biodiversity patterns in natural ecosystems are dynamically sustained by food webs, describing the feeding relations among all ecosystem compartments, including the involved animal and plants. More
