Post-fire habitat associations of greater sage-grouse in Idaho and Oregon, 2016-2018

February 10, 2022

We investigated habitat selection by 28 male greater sage-grouse during each of three years (2016-2018) after a 113,000-ha wildfire in a sagebrush steppe ecosystem in Idaho and Oregon. During the study period, seeding and herbicide treatments were applied for habitat restoration. This dataset includes pre-fire land cover, post-fire vegetation, and post-fire treatment data within 500-m buffers of sage-grouse telemetry locations and random locations within the perimeter of the wildfire. These data were used to analyze habitat selection by sage-grouse in each of the three years.
