Over 100 million ha of the western range in the United States were once dominated by sagebrush (Artemisia spp.), mostly big sagebrush (A. tridentatus). In this century, a minimum of 10% of the sagebrush rangelands were altered by human activities, primarily for livestock use. In Idaho, over 650 thousand ha of public land and 200 thousand ha of private land, mostly dominated by big sagebrush, were burned, chained, disced, railed, or sprayed and reseeded with crested wheatgrass (Agropyron cristatum and A. desertorum). The objective of this study was to compare the relative densities and species diversifies of small mammals among four areas subjected to different land management practices. The study was conducted on the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory (INEL) Site in southeastern Idaho, approximately 48 km W Idaho Falls, Idaho.
