      In response to Senate Bill and Executive Orders and , many Department of Environmental Quality permits and approvals in sage grouse core, general, or connectivity habitat, received on or after January 1, , must include a letter of comment from the Sage Grouse Habitat Conservation Program. A SPATIAL MODEL OF SAGE GROUSE HABITAT QUALITY* Robert A. Nisbet, Stephen H. Berwick, and Kenneth L. Reed2 Computerized cartographic modeling of sage grouse habitat can predict probable lek sites. Habitat factors identified in data analysis of 41 lek sites were mapped, digitized, and processed to show areas of probable lek site : Robert A. Nisbet, Stephen H. Berwick, Kenneth L. Reed.

      for Greater Sage-Grouse), we assume that the resulting IBA boundaries encompass landscapes that will support the better part of the year-round habitat and life-history requirements for the sage-grouse population within each IBA. The core area model and subsequent GIS mapping effort produced two ways of . Sagebrush cover types other than big sagebrush can fulfill greater sage-grouse habitat requirements; in fact, the grouse may prefer other sagebrush cover types to big sagebrush. Greater sage-grouse in Antelope Valley, California, for example, use black sagebrush cover types more often than the more common big sagebrush cover : Phasianidae.

        Abstract. We revised distribution maps of potential presettlement habitat and current populations for Greater Sage-Grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) and Gunnison Sage- Grouse (C. minimus) in North revised map of potential presettlement habitat included some areas omitted from previously published maps such as the San Luis Valley of Colorado and Jackson area of Cited by: displaces sage-grouse when selecting brood-rearing and adult female breeding habitat (LeBeau et al. ). Mining activities are another potential source of land surface disturbance, of which little is known of their effects on sage-grouse, outside of anecdotal evidence that coal mining has displaced sage-grouse in Colorado (Braun
