Developing searchable annotated bibliographies for resource managers

Resource management decisions need to be informed by up-to-date, quality science and data. However there is sometimes an overwhelming number of scientific publications for managers to consider in their decisions. This project provides concise summaries of recent, peer-reviewed science and data products about different resources and topics of management concern, integrated into a searchable tool.

Annotated Bibliography of Scientific Research on Greater Sage-Grouse

The greater sage-grouse has been a focus of scientific investigation and management action for the past two decades. The sheer number of scientific publications can be a challenge for managers tasked with evaluating and determining the need for potential updates to existing planning documents.

Mapping Chronic Wasting Disease Management: Identify Opportunities for Intervention

This research effort is an interagency partnership between U.S. Geological Survey and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to model the social-ecological system that encompasses chronic wasting disease management in the United States. Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is a fatal, neurologically degenerative disease that impacts many cervid species in North America (e.g., elk, moose, mule deer, and white...

Modeling Habitat-Relationships of Pinyon-Juniper and Sagebrush Associated Bird Species to Inform Conifer Removal

Management agencies are increasingly restoring sagebrush systems by removing conifers. These treatments likely result in mixed effects for wildlife species, and wildlife response may vary across the landscape. Declining sagebrush and pinyon-juniper associated bird populations highlight a clear need for tools that can help guide conifer management across the sagebrush ecosystem.
