Meta-X is a basic computing device application that enables scholars, lecturers, and researchers to accomplish a metapopulation viability research i.e. to evaluate the extinction probability of (meta)populations on discrete, in part remoted patches of habitat, in a snug method. The CD comes with an in depth guide and is the reason the fundamental notion of this system and takes you on a guided travel via a version scan. It additional presents the required clinical history on either metapopulation dynamics and inhabitants viability research.
A unique function of Meta-X is that it helps comparative analyses of other situations. This predestines Meta-X to function an reduction for determination making in conservation administration and panorama making plans. in addition, guide and software program jointly offer a useful assist in examine and teaching.
procedure Requirements:
Windows 95/98, home windows 2000, home windows NT 4.0, or home windows XP, Pentium Processor with a least 133 MHz, sixty four MB RAM, 15 MB of unfastened house on harddrive, CD-ROM force with no less than 4x pace, Microsoft net Explorer 4.0 or higher.

You can also choose which output quantities you want to be calculated. Again, we leave the default unchanged. 1. Click Next to start evaluation. 4 Evaluation 49 There are three tabs (‘s0’, ‘s1’, ‘Comparison’). Note: You can copy the diagrams displayed on the evaluation window to the clipboard or print them directly via a context menu: click the right mouse button while the cursor is placed over the diagram. If you place the cursor over a certain point or bar in the diagram and wait for a while, the number of the value on the x-axis and its value are displayed.

36 5 Guided Tour Note: You may also directly specify the reachability, correlation or colonization matrix or modify entries in these matrices (see Chaps. 7 and 13 for a detailed description of the hierarchical structure of the META-X model and Chap. 15 for the issue of parameterization). 1. Click Next. The window ‘Control Parameters for the Whole Experiment’ now allows us to tailor some or all control parameters to the current scenario which may differ from the control parameters specified for the whole experiment.

To translate them into terms which have a direct meaning concerning metapopulation dynamics and extinction risk. Please note the default of META-X that all patches are occupied at the beginning of a simulation. Later, in your own applications, you can change this by clicking the checkboxes which indicate occupancy. 2. Click Next. 1 Your First META-X Experiment 33 Connection Between Patches Here you have to specify the pairs of patches between which recolonization may occur: 1. In the window ‘Connections of Patches’ click Connect all.
