Keeping Prairie Grouse on the Prairie with Danielle Berger

September 7 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission (NGPC) has monitored the state’s prairie grouse populations since the 1950s using spring lek counts and wing-ratio data collected from hunters in the fall. While these indices have been used to evaluate short-term trends in abundance and production, no one has used the data to assess long-term historical population trends. Our research modeled spatial and temporal trends of greater prairie-chicken and sharp-tailed grouse abundance and production in Nebraska using NGPC’s historical prairie grouse monitoring data.

Danielle Berger completed her master’s degree at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which focused on the historical ecology of prairie grouse in the Sandhills. She is now pursuing her doctoral degree at Utah State University.
