DesktopGarp is a software package for predicting and analyzing wild species distributions; it is a reengineered version of the original GARP that runs on personal computers and workstations. The acronym GARP stands for Genetic Algorithm for Rule-set Production. It is a genetic algorithm that creates models describing environmental conditions under which the species should be able to maintain populations. For input, GARP uses a set of point localities where the species is known to occur and a set of geographic layers representing the environmental parameters that might limit the species' capabilities to survive. GARP is available to run as part of workflows in Kepler.
