About this book

Meta-X is a user-friendly computer program that aids users in the performance of a metapopulation viability analysis i.e to assess the extinction risk of (meta)populations on discrete, partially isolated patches of habitat. The CD is accompanied by an extensive handbook which explains the basic concept of the program and provides the necessary scientific background on both metapopulation dynamics and population viability analysis.
