This data set defines boundaries of oil and gas project areas, greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) core areas, and non-core and non-project areas within the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI; southwestern Wyoming). Specifically, the data represents results from the manuscript “Combined influences of future oil and gas development and climate on potential Sage-grouse declines and redistribution” for low oil and gas development, high population size, and no climate component. The oil and gas development scenario were based on an energy footprint model that simulates well, pad, and road patterns for oil and gas recovery options that vary in well types (vertical and directional) and number...

All data layers included in this data release were created using the Prioritizing Restoration of Sagebrush Ecosystems Tool (PReSET) tool, which relies on spatial inputs on species distributions and likelihood of restoration success to select parcels for sagebrush restoration. The PReSET is a workflow that relies on the prioritizr package in program R to identify parcels for effective and meaningful sagebrush restoration.Inputs into the tool included occupancy data layers for six focal species (Brewer’s sparrow (Spizella breweri), sagebrush sparrow (Artemisiospiza nevadensis), sage thrasher (Oreoscoptes montanus), greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus), pronghorn (Antilocapra americana) and greater short-horned...

Currently, little is known about the native fish assemblages present in the Green River drainage of southwestern Wyoming. Of particular interest are the bluehead sucker (BHS), flannelmouth sucker (FMS), and the roundtail chub (RTC). Bluehead sucker, FMS, and RTC have declined in Wyoming and throughout their native ranges. The Natural Heritage Program assigns BHS the global ranking of G4 suggesting its existence to be abundant and globally secure, although it may be quite rare in parts of its range and is thus the element of long-term concern (Fertig and Beauvais 1999). The Natural Heritage Program assigns FMS the global ranking of G3/G4 suggesting its existence to be uncertain. It is uncommon but seems...

The western subspecies of Corynorhinus, C. townsendii pallescens and C. t. townsendii are not currently federally listed or candidate species throughout their range. Two eastern subspecies, C. townsendii ingens and C. townsendii virginianus, are currently listed as Endangered by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Both Regions 2 and 4 of the Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management in Wyoming and Colorado list the full species as sensitive within their jurisdictions. The Bureau of Land Management in South Dakota, Nebraska and Kansas apparently does not provide any special protection for the bats. The Wyoming Natural Diversity Database lists it as being of particular conservation concern as indicated...

Plegadis chihi, the White-faced Ibis, is a member of the Ciconiiformes order. They are large, long-legged birds, and they fly with a strong and steady wingbeat (Trost 1989). They are members of the Threskiornithidae family and as such are wading birds. They are gregarious, heronlike birds with long legs and long specialized bills to facilitate feeding in shallow waters (Field Guide to the Birds of North America 1999). They often fly in flocks of 10-50 birds, either in a “V” formation or in long lines, and their only vocalization is a double grunt that sounds like “greh-greh” (Trost 1989). The White-faced Ibis is an attractive wading bird that is locally common in the western United States, where it...

This dataset is a binary input representing irrigated areas (during 'dry' years) as a raster dataset. Parcels identified as being irrigated are assigned a value of 1 while non-irrigated areas are assigned a value of 0. This raster is one of 9 inputs used to calculate the "Normalized Importance Index."

The values in this raster are unit-less scores ranging from 0 to 1 that represent normalized dollars per acre damage claims from elk on Wyoming lands. This raster is one of 9 inputs used to calculate the "Normalized Importance Index."

This data set defines boundaries of oil and gas project areas, greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) core areas, and non-core and non-project areas within the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI; southwestern Wyoming). Specifically, the data represents results from the manuscript “Combined influences of future oil and gas development and climate on potential Sage-grouse declines and redistribution” for high oil and gas development, low population size, and with effects of climate change under an RCP 8.5 scenario (2050) . The oil and gas development scenario were based on an energy footprint model that simulates well, pad, and road patterns for oil and gas recovery options that vary in well...

Four populations of Columbia spotted frog (Rana luteiventris) are currently recognized, including three disjunct, southern populations and a main population extending from northwest Wyoming through western Canada. The main (or northern) population includes Wyoming. It has no federal status as endangered or threatened and is generally considered to be secure, although some local declines have been documented. Most occupied habitat for the Columbia spotted frog occurs on lands managed by the National Forest Service (Regions 2 and 4) and the National Park Service (Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks ). The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) may have potential habitat in the Green River Basin and higher...

The Long-billed Curlew (Numenius americanus) is the largest bird in the sandpiper family (Scolopacidae), and one of only nine species of grassland birds that is considered endemic to the Great Plains (Dugger and Dugger 2002). This curlew species has the southernmost breeding distribution and northernmost wintering distribution of the four curlew species found in North America (Dugger and Dugger 2002). It breeds in the Great Plains, Great Basin, and intermontane valleys of the western U.S. and southwestern Canada (Dugger and Dugger 2002). The Longbilled Curlew is cinnamon-brown above, and buff below, with a very long, strongly downcurved bill (Field Guide to the Birds of North America 1999). Cinnamon-buff wing...

Interest in rare species has increased substantially over the past 40 years, and currently there is broad support for the conservation of rare plants and animals in North America. Natural resource managers, policy makers, and the public require an understanding of the identity, distribution, and abundance of rare species in order to develop effective conservation strategies. Such information is especially vital to management plans that strive to integrate the conservation of rare species with development of natural resources. This publication provides the most complete information available on the status of rare vertebrate species and vascular plant species in Wyoming. It updates and...
