Since its release we have continued this effort, initiating population response modeling using the individual-based population program HexSim. Though still at preliminary draft stage, population response simulations from this portion of the modeling process are available for public review by request from our office. These simulations do not estimate what will occur in the future, but provide comparative information on potential population responses to different conservation scenarios as described in the draft revised recovery plan.
