Presentation: Sagebrush Grasslands Restoration for Greater Sage-Grouse Recovery  ( 2017-11-29 )

When: Wednesday, November 29th, 2017 at 12:00 pm CST

VIEW POSTER

Sagebrush is an important component of Greater Sage-Grouse habitat but the loss of sagebrush has led to the decline of Sage-Grouse populations and subsequent species at risk designation. Canada’s recovery strategy for Sage-Grouse suggests low-quality habitat could support positive population growth through the restoration of habitat. Little research has been conducted on sagebrush restoration and conventional restoration methods such as broadcast seeding and out-planting container stock seedlings have limited success. My Ph.D. research focuses on developing restoration methods to improve establishment, growth, and survival of seeded or transplanted sagebrush to increase the size and improve quality of sagebrush habitat to facilitate recovery of Sage-Grouse populations and other species at risk. Experiments address three areas critical to sagebrush restoration success: sagebrush population ecology, and improving container growth and seeding of sagebrush.
