Summary

Fire ranks among the top three threats to the greater sage-grouse ( Centrocercus urophasianus) throughout its range, and among the top two threats in the western part of its range. The national research strategy for this species and the recent U.S. Department of the Interior Secretarial Order 3336 call for science-based threats assessment of fire to inform conservation planning and fire management efforts. The cornerstone of such assessments is a clear understanding of where fires are occurring and what aspects of fire regimes may be shifting outside of their historical range of variation. Analyses are stratified by major vegetation types and the seven greater sage-grouse management zones, delineated regionally as four western and [...]
