HoPoMo.simple is basically a simplification of HoPoMo.basic. That means it tracks only the total number of adult bees (no age structure), but has a full
featured resource management module, allowing to predict pollen, nectar and honey stores in respect to hive treatments and environmental data. It does NOT provide demographic data, except for the brood stages. But
the model calculated very quick, therefore allowing easy sensitivity analysis.
Below you see the summarized results of 75 simulation runs performed with parameter values changed within a range of +/- 25% randomly:
This version of HoPoMo is already published by a short conference proceedings paper, that you can find here:
