Sagebrush Perspectives Through History
With their numerous chemical compounds and diverse and widespread nature, sagebrush and other Artemisia species have been regarded as both culturally important and utterly despised around the globe. This project investigates how people have viewed sagebrush through time and space using anthropological databases, providing historical context for a larger project to understand the “social landscape” of sagebrush to inform land management decisions in Idaho.
