A hierarchical integrated population model for greater sage-grouse in the bi-state distinct population segment, California And Nevada

View article.

This study summarizes data from extensive monitoring (2003-12) of sage-grouse populations within the Bi-State DPS. Data regarding lek attendance, movement, and survival of sage-grouse across multiple life stages were documented. A hierarchical integrated population modeling (IPM) approach was used to derive demographic parameters, which allows for the integration of multiple data sources to inform population growth rates and population vital rates.
