(Hydrologic units) were used to identify species ranges. The intent of the
HUC was to constrain the habitat model. In some cases the HUC-depicted
range can extend well beyond the known range of the species .
range coding definitions are available at:
take a Boolean approach to modeling with those areas that contain all
the model attributes selected identified as being suitable.
some cases we also include “or” statements such that if attribute A or
attribute B is present than the habitat is identified as suitable.
are working on regional models, thus that we focused on datasets that
were available for the 5-state study area. Our intention is that the
end-user can modify our models for a subset of the study area if needed.
