EcoNetGen: Simulate and Sample from Ecological Interaction Networks

Randomly generate a wide range of interaction networks with specified size, average degree, modularity, and topological structure. Sample nodes and links from within simulated networks randomly, by degree, by module, or by abundance. Simulations and sampling routines are implemented in 'FORTRAN', providing efficient generation times even for large networks. Basic visualization methods also included. Algorithms implemented here are described in de Aguiar et al. (2017) <arXiv:1708.01242>.
