Proportional Seed Survival

This behavior reduces the number of seeds by a set amount.

Parameters for this behavior

Parameter nameDescription
Proportion Germinating Between 0 and 1The proportion of seeds of a species that survive germination, as a value between 0 and 1.

How it works

In each cell of the Dispersed Seeds grid, this multiples the number of seeds present by the Proportion Germinating Between 0 and 1 parameter, reducing the total number available. The new number of seeds is placed back in the Dispersed Seeds grid.

How to apply it

Apply this behavior to seeds of any species. Any species to which this is applied must have a Disperse behavior applied as well.
