Summary

This metadata references the polygonal ARC/INFO GIS cover showing the current and historic distribution of potential habitat, or range, of the Greater Sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) and Gunnison Sage-grouse (Centrocercus minimus) in Western North America. This data was initially researched and compiled by Dr. Michael A. Schroeder, research biologist for the Washington State Department of Fish and Wildlife. The initial draft of current and historic range data was mapped and submitted to state, federal, or provincial natural resource agencies and other experts for review, comment, and editing. The final product represents the best available science and expert review available at the time of compilation.Definition of "Current [...]

Purpose

The purpose of this data compilation and mapping effort was to digitally compile and standardize current and historic sage-grouse range data, at a regional scale, for Western North America. The GIS data layers resulting from this effort will serve as a baseline for future projects to update and refine Sage-grouse distribution. The layers will be used as a starting point to monitor and analyze changes in the range over time.
