Public Release: 

Advances in Forest Threat Assessment: Applications to Forest and Rangeland Management

Conference announcement and call for papers

USDA Forest Service ‑ Southern Research Station

The Problem

North America's forests and rangelands face many environmental threats that often act in concert and with no regard for land ownership and administrative boundaries. As such, they are difficult to identify and anticipate, much less manage or control.

The Conference

A conference will be held July 18-20, 2006, in Boulder, Colorado, to explore the latest information on environmental threat assessment and management. The conference will include scientific and case study sessions, oral and poster presentations, and panel discussions.

Individuals are encouraged to submit papers for the conference. Some of the accepted papers will be peer-reviewed and published in a single-volume book and incorporated into a Web-based forest threats encyclopedia, a new component of the Forest Encyclopedia Network.
