BLM REA MIR 2011 Greater Sage-Grouse Breeding Bird Density (75%)

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

ESRI file geodatabase of greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) range-wide breeding densities at 25% (BreedingDensity25), 50% (BreedingDensity50), 75% (BreedingDensity75) and 100% (BreedingDensity100) of breeding population. The objective of this BLM project is to map high breeding densities of greater sage-grouse for use in conservation planning. This completion report provides two deliverables: 1) The analytical framework for evaluating options on where partners can deliver actions that will yield the highest return on their conservation investment, and 2) The GIS shapefiles delineating high breeding densities of sage-grouse for use by conservation planners. Maps developed here provide a large-scale view of the distribution and abundance of sage-grouse, but risks and opportunities vary widely. State game and fish agencies responsible for sage-grouse conservation and management can provide additional knowledge of sage-grouse habitat needs. We encourage federal agencies and other partners to consult with their respective state wildlife agencies before implementing sage-grouse conservation actions.
