Abstract
This manual provides instructions for using a spatially explicit demographic simulator called PATCH ( a Program to Assist in Tracking Critical Habitat) The model was designed to project populations of territorial terrestrial vertebrate species through time, but it can perform other analyses as well. PATCH is ideal for investigations involving wildlife species that are mobile habitat specialists because it pays careful attention to habitat pattern and quality. Where the details of landscape pattern are relatively unimportant, a different model may be preferable. PATCH is a single species, females only model, thus it cannot track intra-specific interactions, or complications associated with mate finding or sex ratio. In spite of these limitations, PATCH can accommodate a broad range of analyses, and it should be useful for both theoretical and applied investigations.
