Summary

Spatial associations between marked sage-grouse and existing PMU boundaries were used as an initial starting point for delineating subregions for habitat selection analyses and naming conventions across Nevada and northeastern California. Ultimately, the data were partitioned into 19 subregions based on movement patterns of individual radio-marked sage-grouse for habitat analyses, with each grouse occupying one subregion only. Some subregions contained too few marked sage-grouse for sufficient training data to develop a habitat model, which resulted in the exclusion of seven subregions with fewer than 20 marked sage-grouse or less than 100 telemetry locations. However, data from these excluded ‘non-RSF’ subregions were sufficient to [...]
