General Engine for Eco-Evolutionary Simulations

Contains an engine for spatially-explicit eco-evolutionary mechanistic models with a modular implementation and several support functions. It allows exploring the consequences of ecological and macroevolutionary processes across realistic or theoretical spatio-temporal landscapes on biodiversity patterns as a general term.

Rangel, Loic Pellissier (2021) "gen3sis: A general engine for eco-evolutionary simulations of the processes that shape Earth's biodiversity" .
