Pocket Guide to Sagebrush by Leila Shultz
This guide is written for anyone interested in learning more about sagebrush species and habitats. It provides descriptions of some of the remarkably diverse sagebrush communities in western North America. The purpose of the guide is to give identifying characteristics and range maps of 18 species of sagebrush, encompassing 27 different kinds (including subspecies and hybrids).
The different kinds of sagebrush are identified primarily through pictures and dialogue. Community descriptions are given as a brief overview of the habitat diversity within the sagebrush ecosystem. Diagrams and maps show where you might find the species in the landscape.
This guide was made possible by Utah State University's College of Natural Resources and Intermountain Herbarium, staffs of the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), USDA Forest Service, Bureau of Land Managment (BLM), and Point Reyes Bird Observatory (PRBO) Conservation Science.
