    Description

    Wildlife species richness, densities, and distribution are directly related to the quality and quantity of habitat (Autenrieth 1983; Autenrieth and others 1982; Bodurtha and others 1989; Call and Maser 1985; Caughley 1979; Kindschy and others 1982; Leckenby and others 1982; Reynolds 1980; Russo 1964; Thomas and others 1979a,c; Yoakum 1980). Productive big game ranges, are generally productive livestock ranges. Productive livestock ranges can, with proper planning and management, be productive wildlife ranges (fig. 1); however, many livestock range improvement projects have been detrimental to wildlife, particularly to big game and sage-grouse.
