Title

Greater sage-grouse response to surface coal mine disturbance in northwestern Colorado

Description

Like many wildlife species, the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus; hereafter, sage-grouse) has experienced extensive habitat loss and regional population declines as a result of agriculture, mining practices, and human settlement. Some of the greatest impacts to sage-grouse populations are due to anthropogenic disturbances such as land conversions, usually agricultural development, and natural resource development. In 2010, the greater sage-grouse, was petitioned range-wide for listing to receive protections under the Endangered Species Act and the U. S. Fish and Wildlife Service determined the listing was “warranted, but precluded.” Populations have declined range-wide, and currently occur in 11 states and 2 Canadian Provinces.
