Species Life Cycle Analysis Modules (SLAM) is a tool for modeling life-cycle dynamics. Designed for rapid exploration of alternative life-cycle structures and stage transition assumptions, the program can be used to evaluate the population consequences of proposed management actions that affect survival and capacity of specific life stages.
