Wildlife Impacts from Energy Development in Wyoming's Upper Green River Valley
The Wilderness Society contracted with experts to review existing land management plans and oil and gas Environmental Impact Statements in the Upper Green River Valley in southwestern Wyoming. Two reports resulted from this work--one on big game and the other on sage-grouse.  http://www.wilderness.org/Library/Documents/wildlife_energy_UpperGreen.cfm

Effects of Coalbed Methane Development on Great Plains Fish Assemblages
Wild Fish Habitat Initiative
(2005-2007) Montana State University
Goal of research is to better understand the influence of coalbed methane development on the aquatic biota and habitats of southeast Montana and northeast Wyoming. The research team's specific objective is to determine the effect of coalbed methane development on intermittent prairie stream fish assemblages.
