Body

In this chapter, we identify and describe the population status and habitat requirements of 11 species of concern to be addressed in the habitat assessment and conservation plan components of this document. For these purposes, we define species of concern as declining or potentially declining sagebrush-dependent vertebrates without existing conservation, recovery, or management plans.

Our species of concern selection process was to 1) identify species associated with sagebrush in the assessment area, 2) eliminate those species for which conservation planning or management exists or is underway, 3) determine which remaining species are experiencing population decline or potential decline, and 4) select from the remaining species those whose habitat can be evaluated meaningfully on a regional scale.
