Genotypes and cluster definitions for a range-wide greater sage-grouse dataset collected 2005-2017

Metadata Updated: October 29, 2023

Monitoring change in genetic diversity in wildlife populations across multiple scales could facilitate prioritization of conservation efforts. We used microsatellite genotypes from 7,080 previously collected genetic samples from across the greater sage-grouse (Centrocercus urophasianus) range to develop a modelling framework for estimating genetic diversity within a recently developed hierarchically nested monitoring framework (clusters). The majority of these genetic samples (n=6560) were used in previous research (Oyler-McCance et al. 2014; Cross et. al 2018; Row et. al. 2018). Genetic diversity values associated with clusters across multiple scales could facilitate the identification of areas with low genetic diversity and inform the potential management or conservation priority and response. We also report the data used to define genetic diversity thresholds of conservation concern and a full reporting of the genetic diversity estimates associated with the evaluated clusters.
