Small Mammal Distribution - Sagebrush habitats - SW Wyoming.


July 2008 - June 2009


Distribution and trend data for small mammals that are classified as SGCN within sagebrush systems is lacking and needed for the CWCS revision. There is also a growing interest and need for updated information for these species, due to accelerated rate of change of sagbrush landscapes in Wyoming.
