Fertilizing Western Rangelands for Ungulate Conservation: An Assessment of Benefits and Risks

Fertilizing Western Rangelands for Ungulate Conservation

To offset habitat loss from energy development, wildlife managers are experimenting with large-scale sagebrush fertilization on western public rangelands. We synthesize what is known about basic sagebrush ecosystem biogeochemistry and ungulate nutritional ecology to anticipate the benefits and risks of this emerging mitigation tool.

Market-based Wildlife Mitigation in Wyoming: A Primer (2013)

Market-based Wildlife Mitigation in Wyoming

This publication contextualizes payment for ecosystem service markets and explains mitigation banking, conservation banking, and habitat exchanges and how these markets might work in Wyoming.

Kristi Hansen, Anne Jakle, and Mary Hogarty (2013)

Natural Gas Development and Wildlife Mitigation: A Primer, 2012

Natural Gas and Wildlife Mitigation in Wyoming: A Primer

This primer lays an informational foundation and understanding of terminology for mitigation stakeholders. It outlines the mitigation process (avoidance, minimization, and compensation) and sets the stage for wildlife mitigation triggers and guidelines surrounding natural gas development in Wyoming.

Anne Jakle (2012)
Wind Development and Wildlife Mitigation in Wyoming: A Primer (2012)

Wind Development and Wildlife Mitigation in Wyoming: A Primer

This publication surveys existing wildlife mitigation practices for wind energy projects and explores what might be next for wind as development moves increasingly to federal lands and may be subject to increased permitting and mitigation requirements. It is meant to help land and wildlife managers, decision-makers, and industry better understand the context of mitigation and wind energy development.

Anne Jakle (2012)
