Dataset: A Time Series of Herbaceous Annual Cover in the Sagebrush Ecosystem


Great Basin Landscape Conservation Cooperative(administrator), Stephen Boyte(Principal Investigator), Bruce Wiley(Co-Investigator), Dataset: A Time Series of Herbaceous Annual Cover in the Sagebrush Ecosystem


We integrated 250-m enhanced Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (eMODIS) Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) with land cover, biogeophysical (e.g., soils, topography) and climate data into regression-tree software (Cubist®). We integrated this data to create a time series of spatially explicit predictions of herbaceous annual vegetation cover in sagebrush ecosystems, with an emphasis on annual grasses. Annual grass cover in sagebrush ecosystems is highly variable year-to-year because it is strongly dependent on highly variable weather patterns, particularly precipitation timing and totals. Annual grass cover also reflects past disturbances and management decisions. We produced 17 consecutive years (2000 – 2016) [...]
