The software package PSPManalysis implements numerical procedures for the demographic, bifurcation and evolutionary analysis of physiologically structured population models (PSPMs), which is a class of models that consistently translates continuous-time models of individual life history to the population level. The software package consists of a computational back-end that is implemented in C. For reasons of computational efficiency the user-defined model of individual life history has to be implemented in C as well on the basis of a template provided in the package. After implementing the functions that determine the life history, such as development and mortality rates and fecundity, however, the package can be used for computations in either R or Matlab/Octave, for which interpreted language front-ends are included.
