For each sampled network, we estimated 1) total numbers of herpetofauna species' EOOs overlapped; 2) overlap for species classified by their IUCN risk status (Critically Endangered, Endangered, Vulnerable, Near Threatened, Data Deficient, Least Concern); 3) JCUs and corridors containing the greatest proportions of overlap; and 4) the proportion of the species' EOO overlapped by the network.
The JCUs with the greatest overlap of endemic amphibian and reptile distributions in the NCA jaguar network were the Chimalapas (n = 59) in Southern Mexico and the Sierra de las Minas in Guatemala (n = 46).
Similarly, the western Honduras corridors spanning the north coast are more likely to link JCUs between Guatemala and Honduras (Castaneda et al., 2011).
federal courts, the JCUS and Circuit Councils are composed of approximately half trial judges and half appellate judges, which gives trial courts significant representation, if not proportional representation.
(106) This, again, finds parallel in the United States, where one trial court judge and one appellate judge from each of the regional circuits is appointed to the JCUS.
