The area most desirable for managed relocation will be the darkest shade of green (HQhigh;CLhigh). Because this may not be present for a given species, the manager can choose the next best available combination for the species. The color scheme presented assists in this selection.
The HQ-CL legend reflects the combination of DISTRIB-II (habitat quality - HQ) and SHIFT (colonization likelihood - CL) models. HQ was reclassified into 3 classes (HQlow, HQmed, HQhigh) and CL was reclassified into four classes (CLnull, CLlow, CLmed and CLhigh) and combined to generate 12 classes. Note that CLnull depicts areas where there is no colonization.
