    Fossil Creek Software : Home
    POP-II is a simulation program used primarily by applied wildlife biologists to simulate the dynamics of large mammal populations, typically deer, elk, moose, etc.. The simulation model is also used in teaching college-level natural resources classes. Use by applied wildlife managers is directed towards predicting the consequences of various harvest strategies and to assess ongoing data collection activities. university use typically focuses on the understanding of population dynamics and demonstrating sensitivity of input variables to model behavior. Additional use of POP-II is made by federal agencies to assess the conseuences of land management decisions on resident game populations.
