Future of endangered species management in the Platte River Basin: Resolving conflicts between water development and endangered species protection
Greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) is a candidate for listing under the Endangered Species Act because of population and habitat fragmentation coupled with inadequate regulatory mechanisms to control development in critical areas. In addition to the current threats to habitat, each 1 degree celsius increase due to climate change is expected to result in an additional 87,000 km2 of sagebrush (Artemisia spp.) that will be converted to unsuitable habitat for sage-grouse. Thus, the future distribution and composition of sagebrush landscapes is likely to differ greatly from today’s configuration. We conducted a large, multi-objective project to identify: (1) characteristics of habitats required by sage-grouse,...

This layer represents least-cost (shortest-path) habitat centrality across potentiall suitable habitat for gray wolves in the Western United States. Here, least-cost centrality measures the relative role of a given portion of a potential movement path to facilitating movement of wolves across the landscape. Centrality metrics are based on graph theory. A graph is a set of nodes in which pairs of nodes can be connected by edges representing functional connections (e.g., dispersal) between the nodes. Edges can be assigned weights that represent attributes such as habitat quality. A sequence of nodes connected by edges forms a path. Landscape lattices are graphs in which every cell in a raster is treated as a node...
