Supplemental figure S2

Supplemental figure S2. Potential suitable habitat (suitable/unsuitable) (A) and Habitat suitability index (B) maps of Lama guanicoe across Chile’s Norte Chico. The suitable habitat threshold was defined as the habitat suitability index value that maximized the sum of sensitivity and specificity (see Methodology). Habitat patches corresponding to the guanaco populations are represented in Figure part B: 1. Pan de Azúcar National Park; 2. Nevado Tres Cruces National Park; 3. Llanos de Challe National Park; 4. Oso Negro sector; 5. El Morro; 6. Los Choros; 7. Calvario stream; 8. Tres Quebradas river; 9. El Tambo stream; 10. Estero Derecho nature sanctuary; 11. Pelambres area.
