University of Nevada

UNR is the Land Grant University that supports research surrounding the Nevada Great Basin’s population of both Greater sage-grouse and Bi-State sage-grouse. Ongoing research and extension programs focus on: sagebrush habitat resilience and security; riparian functions and forbs that are necessary in late brood rearing habitat; revised ecological site descriptions; strategic fuels management;  pinyon-juniper ecology and hydrology; and the effects of horse and cattle grazing on the sagebrush ecosystem.
