Appendix A. Diagram of model suite design, selection, and informed comparisons using evidence ratios.


Fig. A1. Diagram illustrates methods used to differentiate the habitat characteristics most important for two model suites with different response variables. This process is useful when the response variables are correlated (e.g., association between plant abundance and size), yet each are predicted to be ecologically significant for the model organism (e.g., representative of different life history stages).
