Featured Publication: Advancing risk assessment models to address climate change, economics and uncertainty
In a special issue, the journal NeoBiota features research presented during a 2012 meeting of the International Pest Risk Mapping Workgroup. The meeting was held in Tromsø, Norway, to address the risk of alien pest invasions in the food chain. The resulting research articles reflect ideas for considering interacting factors such as climate change, economics, and uncertainty in order to advance the science of pest risk assessment. Eastern Threat Center research ecologist Frank Koch served as a contributing author, manuscript reviewer, and associate editor for the special issue. Read the special issue and the news release.
