Mapping the Nevada Habitat


The Sagebrush Ecosystem Program has worked with U.S. Geological Survey to have a map generated from its habitat suitability modeling efforts to determine the most suitable habitat areas for Greater Sage-grouse within the State. These data were used to best represent Greater Sage-grouse habitat areas at the landscape scale and delineate them according to their importance on a map. Below is the Greater Sage-grouse composite habitat suitability index (HSI) map as well as the map depicting the current habitat management category areas for Greater Sage-grouse.
