* 'tested' means the modeled habitat was significantly more frequently associated with known occurrences than with a random set of points

'occurrences' means the maps display point locations or river reaches having recent use, or polygons encompassing those sites

'model, occurrence data' means the habitats are identified using a combination of environmental modeling and survey data
