Hi Tom,

you may have a look at the CRAN package simecol, that has some examples
how to implement different types of dynamic models in R (differential
equations, grid models, individual based models).

Individual-based models (IBMs) are a model family used in ecology, which
are in its essence almost the same as ABMs in other areas.

See http://simecol.r-forge.r-project.org for the package, examples,
pdf's, and in particular the useR!2008 slides.
