This graphic shows the breeding densities of Greater Sage-grouse across the range. Return to Greater Sage-grouse Website »
Range-wide sage-grouse breeding density areas represent spatial locations of 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100% of the known breeding population, differentiated by color. Red areas contain 25% of the nesting population in 3.9% of the bird’s occupied range. Because colors are additive, red and orange areas combined capture 50% of the population in 10% of the range. Collectively, breeding density areas contain 25% of sage-grouse in 3.9% of the species range (2.9 million ha), 50% of birds in 10.0% of range (7.5 million ha), 75% of birds in 26.9% of range (20.4 million ha), and 100% of the known population in 54.6% (41.2 million ha) the species range.
