Table 3. Conditional probability table for the outcome node “SM species category” shown in the overall decision model in Fig. 1. See text for explanation of evaluation categories and SM species outcome categories. LSOG = late-successional and old-growth forest. Shown here is only a portion of the very long table.

Input nodes
Outcome node
Evaluation Category 1 – Geographic range
Evaluation Category 2 – LSOG association
Evaluation Category 3 – Plan provides for persistence
Evaluation Category 4 – Data sufficiency
Evaluation Category 5 – Practicality of surveys
Evaluation Category 6 – Species rarity
