Supporting Materials: Hydrogeomorphic classes (present and future) for Washington State: Link to Google Earth (.kmz) file Supporting Materials: Lake and stream vulnerability to O. rusticus establishment according to predictions of a species distribution model using environment factors. Red symbols/lines indicate lakes/streams vulnerable to O. rusticus establishment, black symbols/lines indicate lakes/streams where O. rusticus is present, and gray symbols/lines indicate lakes/streams where O. rusticus is absent and not suitable for establishment.

Supporting Materials: Map of conservation priority areas for the Lower Colorado River Basin according to taxonomic diversity, functional diversity, and phylogenetic diversity. Links to Google Earth (.kmz) files for taxonomic, functional, and phylogenetic diversity. Supporting Materials: NPS units of the United States with park threat ranking (low to high: 0-1) and selection in the best solution by the MARXAN conservation planning software. MARXAN analyses were run with three separate cost layers: 1) current ecological threat (CURRENT_ET), 2) future ecological threat (FUTURE_ET), 3) management challenge (MANAGE_POT), with (MARX_W_R) and without rare species (MARX_WO_R) required in the solution. Selection of a park by MARXAN is indicated by the following abbreviations: ALL – parks chosen by all three analyses; C – parks chosen based on current ecological threat layer only; F – parks chosen based on future ecological threat layer only; M – parks chosen based on management challenge layer only; C&F – parks chosen based on current and future ecological threat layers; C&M – parks chosen based on current ecological threat and management challenge layers; F&M – parks chosen based on future ecological threat and management challenge layers. If rare species (i.e., present ≤2 parks) were present in a park the Rare Species column (RARE_SPECI) contains a Y. Link to Google Earth (.kmz) file (click here)
