What have you learned about this species?
The sagebrush is a perennial shrub with straight, stiif stems. It can be found in the chaparral biome, the dry plains of the western United States, and the drier southern sides of mountains. Sagebrush survives dry climates with its adaptations of using its deep tap roots to find water when it is scarce, otherwise it just uses its shallow roots which are spread out just below the surface. Sagebrush provides from seven to twelve percent protein, is highly digestible, and provides deer with phosphorous and calcium. Sagebrush was used by Native Americans as a smudge herb, which is an herb used for its smell.
