As others have pointed out, you need to give us some more details.
There is an artile about simulation of ecological dynamics in last
December's R News, which may be of some help:
If you're simulating something like a coalescence process, then it might
be easier to use some specialist software. In that case, googling with
a few relevant terms might be the way to go.
