DescriptionSage-grouse (greater sage-grouse [Centrocercus urophasianus] and Gunnison sage-grouse [C. minimus]) were once abundant over a range that approximated that of sagebrush (Artemisia spp.) in 16 Western States and three Canadian Provinces (Aldrich 1963; Connelly and others 2000; Johnsgard 1973). Although their specific requirements vary seasonally and over their life cycle, sage-grouse are almost completely reliant upon sagebrush habitats (Connelly and others 2000; Crawford and others 2004). Some populations are migratory and require ranges exceeding 1,300 km2 (Wambolt and others 2002).
