2013, Range-wide Connectivity of Greater Sage-Grouse Populations: Delineating Spatial Structure from Genetic Information: .

Summary

Habitat and population fragmentation were considered as one of the top factors contributing to the recent U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decision that listing greater sage-grouse was warranted but currently precluded. This study provides an approach that combines genetic markers and landscape analyses to delineate populations, estimate fragmentation and connectivity in sage-grouse populations, and potentially identify underlying causes that limit connectivity and isolate populations. State and federal agencies are focusing current management actions for greater sage-grouse in core areas containing the highest densities of breeding birds. The core area approach permits limited resources to be applied in regions that will have the greatest [...]
