Greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) monitoring in southeast Alberta : 1968-2012

Description

Greater sage-grouse populations in Canada have declined by at least 80 per cent from historical levels. Threats to the Alberta population of sage-grouse include agricultural activities, development in the energy sector, road and power line development, increasing predator populations and disease. Consistent monitoring is important so that population trends can be compared between years and linked to landscape activities. The objective of this report is to compile population monitoring efforts and corresponding methodologies that have been conducted and developed in Alberta since 1968 in order to provide an indication of trend for population decline.
