Mapping and Modeling the Future of O&G Development in Relation to the Conservation of GR Sage Grouse


The effects of oil and gas development on the conservation of greater sage grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) concerns wildlife managers. Effects of development are difficult to ascertain, a situation typical where cause-effect relationships are complex, multivariate, and involve landscape perspectives. Understanding the potential effects of development on grouse requires predicting where development is expected to occur on a landscape level. We gathered “reasonable foreseeable development” spatial data from the USDI’s Bureau of Land Management that were available for Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, and Northwestern Colorado. These data were disparate across the study area, and we standardized them across mapping units [...]
