DescriptionThe sagebrush steppe of the Great Basin in southeastern Oregon is peripheral habitat for pronghorns, but the quality of the habitat can be improved through rangeland management. The relationship between pronghorns and their habitat components—the availability of water, type of forage, barriers that restrict the movement of herds, and the effect of grazing by livestock-are discussed. A worksheet is provided that can be used by range managers to rate the quality of a range as pronghorn habitat. Methods of altering habitat to benefit pronghorns are given.
