Predicted (1989-2015) and forecasted (2015-2114) estimates for rate of change and recovery of sagebrush (Artemisia spp.) following energy development in southwestern Wyoming, USA

November 18, 2019

In 'Predicted (1989-2015) and forecasted (2015-2114) estimates for rate of change and recovery of sagebrush (Artemisia spp.) following energy development in southwestern Wyoming, USA', we provide spatially- and temporally-explicit maps of predictions for the rate of change and time to recovery and percent recovery of sagebrush cover after 100 years (Monroe et al. In Review). The rasters beginning with 'sage.rate' depict the predicted annual rate of change in sagebrush cover for each timestamp interval, across the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative area (WLCI) in southwestern Wyoming, USA (1989-2015). The files 'time_to_recov.tif' and 'perc_recov.tif' are rasters for predicted time to recovery and percent recovery after 100 years, respectively, following energy development across the WLCI area.
