Sagebrush ecosystems in the northern Great Basin are threatened by encroaching juniper and invasive annual grasses. This guide presents a simplified framework to help land managers assess and monitor these threats at large scales. By mapping out different ecological states on your land, identifying their level of risk, and estimating how those states might change, you can choose appropriate management actions.
This booklet outlines a six-step approach to threat-based land management. For work in the field, especially identifying ecological states, see the condensed resource Threat-Based Land Management in the Northern Great Basin: A Field Guide (PNW 723), which comes as a double-sided, foldable poster.
