Brussee, B.E., Coates, P.S., Ricca, M.A., Chenaille, M.P., 2019, Spatially explicit modeling of annual and seasonal habitat for greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) in northeastern California: U.S. Geological Survey data release,


Successful adaptive management hinges largely upon integrating new and improved sources of information as they become available. Updating management tools for greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus, hereafter referred to as “sage-grouse”) populations, which are indicators for the large-scale health of sagebrush (Artemisia spp.) ecosystems in the Great Basin of North America, provide a timely example for this tenet. Recently developed spatially-explicit habitat maps derived from empirical data played a key role in the conservation of this species facing listing under the Endangered Species Act. The spatial data provided herein represent a previously unmapped area of northeastern California spanning 1,169,765 hectares. We applied [...]
