Purpose

To evaluate the nesting and brood-rearing microhabitat factors that influence sage-grouse selection and survival patterns in the Great Basin using a large dataset of micro-habitat characteristics from sites spanning northern Nevada and a portion of northeastern California from 2009–2016. The dataset facilitates evaluation of microhabitat factors important to successful reproduction, while considering variation associated with different climatic conditions and areas affected by wildfire.
