Sage-grouse & Sagebrush Ecosystem

Habitat Selection

Despite being one of the most well-studied upland game birds in North America, key knowledge gaps persist in the understanding of sage-grouse biology. USGS scientists are working to address these knowledge gaps in key areas including the development of population models that incorporate information about the complexities of the biological processes and dynamic habitats, improving the understanding the landscape attributes at facilitate connectivity between populations, and refinement of monitoring strategies and creation of tools to improve information about sage-grouse population characteristics.
