AbstractOn the Ground • Evaluation of range/habitat projects for sage-grouse require careful monitoring to measure their impact. • Daubenmire canopy cover and line-point intercept did not yield similar results. • As herbaceous canopy cover increased, the differences between the cover estimates increased. • Adoption of both techniques by both groups may be the only feasible solution since institutional constraints limit either group from changing monitoring techniques.
