The Lemhi Valley is a sagebrush steppe in Eastern Idaho, along the border with Montana. It is a critical habitat for the pygmy rabbit, and University of Idaho mammalian ecologist Janet Rachlow is gathering data to create maps showing where and when the rabbits spend their time. What they learn about the links between habitat features and habitat use could help inform future decisions involving land management and restoration for these types of environments. Part of the “Science Nation” series.
