RAMAS GIS  
RAMAS GIS is designed to link your GIS with a metapopulation model for population viability analysis and extinction risk assessment. Habitats used by most species are becoming increasingly fragmented, requiring a metapopulation modeling approach to risk analysis. Recognizing habitat patchiness from an endangered species' point of view requires spatial information on habitat suitability. RAMAS GIS meets both these requirements by linking metapopulation modeling with landscape data and GIS technology.

RAMAS Ecotoxicology  
RAMAS Ecotoxicology carries out ecological risk assessments for systems of two kinds: structured single populations, food chains. RAMAS Ecotoxicology is used to make population-level ecological risk assessments for environmental contaminants. It imports data from standard laboratory bioassays, incorporates these data into the parameters of a population model, and performs a risk assessment by analyzing population-level differences between control and impacted samples.

Wa-Tor  
Wa-Tor for Windows is a population ecology simulation game, based on a random model. Wa-Tor is a toroidal (doughnut-shaped) planet completely covered by an ocean and populated by two species. You pit hungry sharks against tasty fish and see who comes out on top. The populations may fluctuate in a similar manner to the Lotka-Volterra model, continuing for hundreds of generations, or the populations may go extinct in a very short time, depending on the initial parameters and subsequent random events. The population may also become chaotic for a time, then return to relatively regular fluctuations.

RAMAS Red List  
RAMAS Red List implements IUCN threatened species criteria, which are rules for assigning species into categories representing different level of threat. The IUCN rules are based on information about such characteristics as number and distribution of individuals, fluctuations and decline in abundance and distribution, and risk of extinction. These characteristics are used as input data; the output is a classification into one of the categories, such as Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable, or Lower Risk.
