With the interface, you will be able to:
PoPS has been successfully used by university researchers and government analysts to model both pests and pathogens.
PoPS has been used by:
PoPS has been used to model:
PoPS can be used to model most pests or pathogens.
Right now, you can visit the PoPS Github page to get instructions for using PoPS R-package (requires coding experience).
