This shapefile represents habitat suitability categories (High, Moderate, Low, and Non-Habitat) derived from a composite, continuous surface of sage-grouse habitat suitability index (HSI) values for northeastern California during the winter season (November to March), and is a surrogate for habitat conditions during periods of cold and snow.

This shapefile represents proposed management categories (Core, Priority, General, and Non-Habitat) derived from the intersection of habitat suitability categories and lek space use. Habitat suitability categories were derived from a composite, continuous surface of sage-grouse habitat suitability index (HSI) values for northeastern California formed from the multiplicative product of the spring (mid-March to June), summer (July to mid-Octoer), and winter (November to March) HSI surfaces.

The Great Basin is characterized by strong patterns of precipitation along approximate north-south gradients (Miller and others, 2013). Hence, we used a hydrographic boundary layer developed by Mason (1999), to divide the region-wide extent of sage-grouse habitat mapping analysis into North and South regions that align coarsely with respective mesic (wet) and xeric (dry) regions of the state. Flood regions are based largely on patterns of snowmelt, summer thunderstorms or cyclonic rainfall, and the 8-digit Watershed Boundary Dataset (WBD, 2015) was used to select appropriate watersheds within our mapping extent that corresponded to the Mason (1999) boundary. Slight adjustments, made in ArcMap 10.3, included joining...

This shapefile represents habitat suitability categories (High, Moderate, Low, and Non-Habitat) derived from a composite, continuous surface of sage-grouse habitat suitability index (HSI) values for northeastern California during summer (July to mid-October)¸ which is a surrogate for habitat conditions during the sage-grouse brood-rearing period.

We designed a 12.2 km walking transect so that an observer would pass within 50m of all habitat in the estuary and also minimize fording large channels. This transect was drawn using the path tool in Google Earth on a satellite image of the survey area. The path was printed on top of paper maps and used by observers as a map in the field. Most often, the entire transect was walked by two observers, one starting in the far West, the other in the middle of the estuary. Observers were permitted to deviate from the map to get clear views of certain features like incised channels or to identify a particular bird. The transect spacing worked for most birds, but was too sparse to accurately count Belding’s Savannah Sparrows....
