Summary

This project represents the data used in “Influences of potential oil and gas development and future climate on sage-grouse declines and redistribution.” The data sets describe greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) population change, summarized in different boundaries within the Wyoming Landscape Conservation Initiative (WLCI; southwestern Wyoming). Population changes were based on different scenarios of oil and gas development intensities, projected climate models, and initial sage-grouse population estimates. Description of data sets pertaining to this project: Greater sage-grouse population change (percent change) in a high oil and gas development, low population estimate scenario, and with and without effects of climate [...]

Purpose

The simulated changes in sage-grouse populations presented here can be used to inform management by: 1) understanding the possible range of effects of oil and gas development and future climate influences on sage-grouse habitat, 2) mapping scenarios of how sagebrush vegetation and sage-grouse habitat could change under alternative scenarios, and 3) indicating the degree to which different areas of the landscape could change. These data do not represent absolute predictions, rather they should be interpreted as possible relative differences.
