Modeling ecological minimum requirements for distribution of greater sage-grouse leks

View article.

Results of this study identify attributes important for delineating habitats or modeling connectivity, which will facilitate conservation and management of landscapes important for supporting current and future sage-grouse populations.

Sage-grouse mapping and priority habitats

View brief.

This brief produced by the Western Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies displays the historic and current range of sage-grouse, identifies sage-grouse management zones, and provides breeding bird density maps.

Pocket guide to sagebrush birds

View guide.

This guide features 40 bird species that utilize sagebrush habitats and includes tips on species identification, biology, and conservation status. Because not all of these species require similar habitat types and not all sagebrush is managed for the same goals, this guide discusses how avian needs can be incorporated into land management plans.

GIS database for sage-grouse and shrubsteppe management in the Intermountain West

View report.

In this report 38 federal, state, university, and nongovernmental experts collaborated to produce new scientific information about greater sage-grouse populations, sagebrush habitats, and relationships among sage-grouse, sagebrush habitats, and land use.
