Science framework for conservation and restoration of the sagebrush biome: Linking the Department of the Interior's Integrated Rangeland Fire Management Strategy to long-term strategic conservation actions. Gen. Tech. Rep. RMRS-GTR-360.
The Science Framework is intended to link the Department of the Interior’s Integrated Rangeland Fire Management Strategy with long-term strategic conservation actions in the sagebrush biome.
- It provides a multiscale approach for prioritizing areas for management and determining effective management strategies within the sagebrush biome.
- It links sagebrush ecosystem resilience to disturbance and resistance to nonnative, invasive plant species to species habitat information.
- It is intended to be adaptive and will be updated as additional data become available on other values and species at risk.
