Population Estimation

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.

Greater Sage-Grouse Population Ecology

Greater Sage-grouse are iconic birds found only in the Great Basin of the western U.S. Known for their showy courting displays, sage-grouse rely on native sagebrush habitat to shelter their young. Dr. Pete Coates is providing resource managers with the tools and information they need to conserve sage-grouse as invasive plants, evolving wildfire patterns, and energy development change the Great...
