Conifers are expanding throughout the Great Basin, usually in ecosystems once dominated by sagebrush. That poses a threat to greater sage-grouse, which have declined as sagebrush landscapes have disappeared. In a study in the September issue of the Wildlife Society Bulletin, researchers found that targeting conifer removal is an effective way to restore landscapes and increase space for sage-grouse during breeding season.

Other articles look at Wisconsin residents’ preferences for funding fish and wildlife conservation, using ovariectomies to manage surburban deer, how white-nose syndrome has affected cave management, and more.
