A Network Extension of Species Occupancy Models in a Patchy Environment Applied to the Yosemite Toad (Anaxyrus canorus)

Watershed scale patterns of predicted breeding.

a) Watersheds with high mean predicted probability of A. canorus breeding (Environmental Model) tend to have low coefficient of variation (CV) in breeding probabilities among meadows within the watershed. b) Watersheds with high mean breeding probability across also show high normalized network improvement in the predicted breeding probabilities due to spatial clustering of ‘intrinsically good’ meadows. ‘Normalized network improvement’ is the proportional increase in Environmental Model predicted probability relative to the maximum improvement possible.
