Pocket Guide to Sagebrush
PRBO Conservation Science
This guide is written for anyone interested in learning more about sagebrush species and habitats. The introduction provides descriptions of some of the remarkably diverse sagebrush communities in western North America. The purpose of this guide is to give identifying characteristics and range maps for 18 species of sagebrush, encompassing 27 different kinds (including subspecies and hybrids). More detailed information can be obtained from the taxonomic and ecological treatises mentioned, and it is our hope that this guide will stimulate further examination of species and their habitats.
Appendices at the back of the book provide a list of names in common use, with citations and synonyms. Taxonomy follows the recent treatment for the Flora of North America (Shultz 2006) and a monograph of sagebrush (Shultz 2009).
