Generate a portfolio of solutions for a conservation planning
problem
by extracting all the feasible solutions
discovered during the optimization process.

ConservationProblemclass
object with the portfolio
added to it.
This strategy for generating a portfolio requires problems to
be solved using the Gurobi software suite (i.e. using
add_gurobi_solver
. Specifically, version 8.0.0 (or greater)
of the gurobi package must be installed. Please note that
although the solution pool methods are faster than the other methods
for generating portfolios of solutions, none of the pool methods
are guaranteed to return only solutions within a specified optimality gap.
Also, except for when the method
argument is set to 2, none of
the search methods provide any guarantees on the number of returned
solutions.
