Overall Bayesian belief network (BBN) decision model used by evaluation panels to guide their recommendations on appropriate conservation management categories of Survey and Manage (SM) species under the Northwest Forest Plan of federal agencies in Pacific Northwest, United States. The model displays potential species conservation management categories as a function of six evaluation categories. Figs. 1–8 are parameterized for a rare lichen, Fuscopannaria saubinetii, and gray boxes denote data provided by taxa experts.
