This data set represents a preliminary attempt to define distinct areas of Sage-grouse occupation in North America. The 'boundaries' for subpopulations are not actually boundaries, but lines meant to encircle a specific group of leks. The difference may seem trivial, but it is significant. We did not establish an area associated with each population or subpopulation, and consequently we did not evaluate the associated habitat and/or landscape. This type of analysis would have required a specific assessment of the habitat within and between each of the identified populations and subpopulations. The descriptions of subpopulations are clearly a preliminary attempt to define distinct areas of occupation.
