This metadata references the polygonal ARC/INFO GIS cover showing the current and historic distribution of potential habitat, or range, of the Greater Sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) and Gunnison Sage-grouse (Centrocercus minimus) in Western North America. This data was initially researched and compiled by Dr. Michael A. Schroeder, research biologist for the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife. The initial draft of current and historic range data was mapped and submitted to state, federal, or provincial natural resource agencies and other experts for review, comment, and editing. The final product represents the best available science and expert review available at the time of compilation.Definition...

Kuchler's Potential Natural Vegetation (PNV) map refined by the Fire Science Laboratory, Rocky Mountain Research Station (US Forest Service) to match terrain using a 500 meter Digital Elevation Model,4th Code Hydrologic Units, and Ecological Subregions (Bailey's Sections). These biophysical data layers were integrated with current vegetation layers to develop generalized successional pathway diagrams. Expert regional panels refined the PNV map based on these successional pathways. Originally, these coarse-scale data were developed for national-level planning. Specifically, we used this data set in the Sage-grouse Conservation Assessment. Kuchler (1964) defined potential natural vegetation as "the vegetation...
