The Populus software contains a set of simulations that we use to teach population biology and evolutionary ecology at the University of Minnesota. Simulation models may be chosen from a menu, and students can move among the parameter boxes of an input window, changing initial defaults to values of their own choosing. Most modules offer several graphical outputs of model dynamics, and their computational algorithms are detailed in an Acrobat-based help system packaged with the program.
