Response curves for (a) population density (glds00ag) and (b) poverty (uspov00) in the full model. The response curve for population density indicates a rapid increase in suitable environments from 0 to 300 people per square kilometer, with a gradual increase occurring in areas with population densities greater than ~300 people per square kilometer.  A similar trend is exhibited by the poverty response curve, although the response curve begins to plateau around 100 people per square kilometer living below the poverty level
