At AEMA’s recent convention, Dr. Robert M. Zink, Breckenridge Chair in Ornithology, Professor in Ecology, Evolution & Behavior, Univ. of Minnesota, presented his paper on Conservation Genetics of the Greater Sage-Grouse. Dr. Zink summarizes his work as follows:
– First study to link estimates of population trends with available genetic data
– Common genetic expectations of population reductions not observed in data
– Whatever the extent of population/range reductions, do not currently show negative genetic effects
This study raises serious doubts about the science USFWS used to support their Warranted But Precluded (WBP) decision for the Greater Sage-grouse. Dr. Zink’s paper is currently undergoing peer review.
