Risk Analysis Journal Honors Eastern Threat Center Research

Two scientific papers co-authored by Eastern Threat Center researchers and featured in the journal Risk Analysis are recognized for their contributions to the field of ecological risk assessment. In a special journal issue, Risk Analysis editor Wayne Landis selected 25 key papers published in the journal since its founding in 1981 that represent broad topics and milestones in the development of ecological risk assessment. Among the selected papers related to nonnative species and conservation, Landis states that two 2009 papers by research ecologist Frank Koch (left), biometrician Bill Smith (right), and collaborators "helped set the standard" for risk analysis of pest invasions. One of the papers, "Evaluating critical uncertainty thresholds in a spatial model of forest pest invasion risk," was previously honored with Risk Analysis' 2009 Best Paper Award.
