Effects of rotational grazing management on nesting greater sage-grouse

View article. This study evaluated how recently implemented rotational grazing systems affected sage‐grouse nesting habitat quality as part of a large‐scale, replicated, natural experiment in central Montana, USA. We used Bayesian methods...
