About

Our goal is to contribute to society’s understanding of biological systems.

We do this through GIS, databasing and data analysis and by providing training and open source software.

What’s in a name?

Poisson is the French word for fish and the name of a statistical distribution of fundamental importance in population ecology.

Species Sensitivity Distributions App

The Species Sensitivity Distributions shiny app is a webpage for interactively fitting species sensitivity distributions to concentration data. The user is able to select more than one distribution and plot the individual fits.

Yield per Recruit App

The Yield per Recruit shiny app is a webpage for interactively exploring the effect of various fish population parameters on the schedule, stock-recruitment relationship and yield. The calculations are performed by the ypr R package, which also generates the plots and table.

Tidal Predictions App

The Tide Predictions shiny app is a webpage for visualizing and downloading tide height data. The tide heights are calculated using the rtide R package. Currently, predictions are available for 637 US stations.
