Abstract

CLIMEX is a software program (written in DYMEX) that estimates the potential geographical distribution and seasonal abundance of a plant pest/disease in relation to climate. HarvestChoice has invested in the extension of the CLIMEX package to deal with climate time series rather than average climate conditions.

The package is made available by Hearne Software (license holder).
