General Engine for Eco-Evolutionary Simulations

This is the repository for the R-package of the gen3sis engine.

gen3sis is a spatially-explicit eco-evolutionary mechanistic model with a modular implementation. It allows exploring the consequences of ecological and macroevolutionary processes across realistic or theoretical spatio-temporal landscapes.

How to run one simple simulation

Load and run a simulation with the desired config and landscapes. Exemple data is provided with the package

library("gen3sis")

datapath <- system.file(file.path("extdata", "WorldCenter"), package = "gen3sis")

sim <- run_simulation(config = file.path(datapath, "config/config_worldcenter.R"), 
               landscape = file.path(datapath, "landscape"),
               output_directory = tempdir(),
               verbose=0)

A summary statistics is stored at ‘sim’ more data can be save using the oberver function

How to visualize a simulation

Plot the summary statistics of a simulation

plot_summary(sim)

Check package version

Make sure you have the latest gen3sis version

#print package version
paste("gen3sis version:", packageVersion("gen3sis"))
