Science to Solutions: High-Res Maps Sharpen Focus On Sage Grouse Habitat A new technique called Earth Sense Technology (EST) is a more efficient and cost-effective way to assesses range conditions throughout the West. This report explains how the technology allows managers to better see, quantify, and understand the big picture of how grouse choose seasonal habitats. Developed by Eric Sant and Gregg […]

Science Technical Fact Sheet: Mapping Potential Ecosystem Resilience and Resistance across Sage-Grouse Range using Soil Temperature and Moisture Regimes A recent scientific breakthrough links soil temperature and moisture regimes to sagebrush ecosystem responses to disturbance and annual grass invasion. Soil climate data are fundamentally important in classifying and mapping soils, and are widely collected as part of […]
