This model simulates animal metapopulations in spatially explicit landscapes, and includes environmental stochasticity.

Explain your reasoning, using at least one biologically realistic example. You can use the agent-based metapopulation model in InsightMaker to help test your ideas, but this is not required.
Just as we can use metapopulation models to study the probability of  regional extinction , we can also study  regional abundance  and regional abundance trends.
