Researchers now find that greater success occurs when corridors are designed to mimic the flow of
electrons in complex circuits. In some circuits the electricity has just one path or wire for electron movement. However,
when there are multiple paths the total resistance to electron flow decreases. In electronics parlance, several resistors
placed in parallel greatly reduce the total resistance of the circuit. The electrons then have several parallel branches for
movement across the circuit. Connecting this idea with wildlife, multiple corridors for wildlife travel are found to be beneficial
to animal movement. In fact the multiple route-arrangement leads to increased dispersion of both wildlife and plants. It is
not the shortest corridor path which is most successful for animal movement. Instead it is the number of travel choices which
brings positive results.
