This raster indicates modeled habitat for various species under current and future conditions. Using the Price et al. (2012) parameters, we modeled species ranges as a function of elevation, temperature, and precipitation as described in Jacobi et al. (2016). Our methods departed slightly from their procedure in that we did not exclude non-pioneer-classified species from young lava flows.

This raster is was used to compare the modeled range of a species under beginning (2000) and end-of-century (2100) climatic conditions under a specific climate downscaling scenario. Attributes of and differences between current and projected conditions were used as inputs to a categorical network model used to estimate the relative vulnerability of the species to the effects of climate change.
