Software of special interest: BioGeoSim
Biogeography software for ecologists. BioGeoSim simulates the stochastic origin and spread of species geographic ranges in a heterogeneous landscape (Rahbek et al. 2007). The landscape is represented as a gridded domain map, with the rows and columns representing the geographic coordinates of the domain.
