SageSTEP Long-term Ecological Monitoring Network: This announcement is the full announcement. This proposal seeks to continue monitoring a set of key variables at 5 sites within the 'Sagebrush Steppe Treatment Evaluation Project' (SageSTEP), so that managers will have better information on how sagebrush steppe ecosystems adapt to climate change, with or without alternative restoration treatments. SageSTEP is ideally suited to help managers restore sagebrush steppe communities in the face of changes in vegetation and fire regimes that have resulted from changing climate and from human activities. Our goal now is to extend monitoring at 10 sites into the intermediate term (from 8-10 years post-treatment) so that land managers can better mitigate and adapt to changes in climate in sagebrush steppe lands. Objectives include: 1) assess long-term trajectories in populations of key plant and animal species, and link these trajectories to management restoration treatments and to climate change; 2) measure total ecosystem carbon over a wide geographic area of sagebrush steppe lands within or near the Great Northern LCC, and determine how patterns of carbon stores are altered by management restoration treatments; and 3) provide managers with information on the extent to which vegetation and wildlife restoration goals conflict with goals to manage carbon.
