I’d like to use a beta distribution to generate variation in MCMs for an insect/disease disturbance. The documentation doesn’t say much about how to use either a normal or beta distribution. How would you specify the shape of the beta distribution curve?
Once you have the alpha and beta parameters calculated you can use the excel "Beta.Dist()" function to plot the shape of your distribution.
If you would like the multiplier to vary between monte carlos only you can leave the timestep field blank. If you want to sample from the distribution for every timestep you will need to specify a record for every timestep.
