DescriptionLarge tracts of important sagebrush (Artemisia L.) habitat in southeastern Idaho, including thousands of acres at the Idaho National Laboratory (INL), continue to be lost and degraded through wildland fire and other disturbances. The roles of most insects in sagebrush ecosystems are not well understood, and the effects of habitat loss and alteration on their populations and communities have not been well studied. Although a comprehensive survey of insects at the INL has not been performed, smaller scale studies have been concentrated in sagebrush and associated communities at the site. Here, I compile a taxonomic inventory of insects identified in these studies. The baseline inventory of more than 1,240 species, representing 747 genera in 212 families, can be used to build models of insect diversity in natural and restored sagebrush habitats.
