An R package for Post HexSim Simulation Analysis.
Using this package, data of population viability analysis (PVA) that were generated with the software HexSim (Schumaker N, HexSim (Version 3 & 4). US Environmental Protection Agency. Environmental Research Laboratory, Corvallis, Oregon. http://www.epa.gov/hexsim), can be collated, plotted and analysed.
