Workflow chart to estimate landscape resistance from each data type and create multi-species connectivity scenarios for two groups of species. A suite of suitability models were developped by integrating environmental variables and by using (1) occupancy modeling or (2) step selection functions (SSF). Each suitability model was then predicted across our study area which was the MBC in Panama. Three negative functions (one linear and two exponential) were used to transform the habitat suitability (from occupancy) or suitability for movement (from SSF) to landscape resistance. Each of the 18 landscape resistance surfaces was subsequently used as input for connectivity modeling. Diagram adapted from [8]
