Abstract

The Dunes Sagebrush Lizard is a habitat specialist that lives in the sand dunes of Mescalero-Monahans dune system. This paper analyzes habitat plots based on previously delineated habitat quality information. Each habitat type was found to differ statistically, structurally, and visually. By better understanding these differences, restoration can be better planned for in the future for this species at risk of extirpation.
