Ecosystem Management for SageGrouse

Eastern Oregon Agricultural Research Center (EOARC) is a cooperative research effort between Oregon State University and USDA-Agricultural Research Service focusing on rangeland ecology and restoration of wildlands, environmentally compatible livestock systems, forage crops, and alternative livestock systems in the sagebrush-steppe of the Great Basin and inland coniferous forests of the Pacific Northwest. The Center's research program is unique in the integration of research about beef cattle, rangeland, wildlife, watershed, and forest management.

Ecosystem Management for Sage-Grouse:  The Great Basin area of the western United States faces a host of challenges and threats to the health of the ecosystem including invasion of exotic annual grasses, altered fire cycles and juniper encroachment. There is substantial and growing concern over a number of sagebrush obligate wildlife species and greater sage-grouse have become the cumulative face of these concerns. This video discusses the need to address sage-grouse concerns within an ecosystem management framework which can benefit all the goods and services the land supplies, including habitat for sage-grouse.
