CDPOPgui is a GUI Frontend for CDPOP

What is CDPOP?

CDPOP (Cost Distance POPulations) is a spatially-explicit simulator of gene-flow in complex landscapes to explain observed population responses and provide a foundation for landscape genetics. The program implements individual-based population modeling with Mendelian inheritance on a resistant landscape. Simulation begins with an initial homogeneous population and followed by divergence through time as functions of individual based movement, breeding and dispersal on a continuous cost surface.

Updates to the software, including natural selection, can be referenced with Landguth EL, Cushman SA, Johnson NA (2012) Simulating natural selection in landscape genetics.
