Description: In July 2006, more than 170 researchers and managers from the United States, Canada, and Mexico convened in Boulder, Colorado, to discuss the state of the science in environmental threat assessment. This two-volume general technical report compiles peer-reviewed papers that were among those presented during the 3-day conference. Papers are organized by four broad topical sectionsâ€”Land, Air and Water, Fire, and Pests/Biotaâ€”and are divided into syntheses and case studies. Land topics include discussions of forest land conversion and soil quality as well as investigations of speciesâ€™ responses to climate change. Air and water topics include discussions of forest vulnerability to severe weather and storm damage modeling. Fire topics include discussions of wildland arson and wildfire risk management as well as how people precieve wildfire risk and uncertainty. Pests/biota topics include discussions of risk mapping and probabilistic risk assessments as well as investigations of individual threats, including the southern pine beetle and Phytophora alni. Ultimately, this publication will foster exchange and collaboration between those who develop knowledge and tools for threat assessment and those who are responsible for managing forests and rangelands.
Keywords: Environmental threats, threat assessment, environmental risk analysis, disturbance, wildfire, pests, forest and rangeland management.
