Christina Devorshak is a Risk Analyst with USDA-APHIS-PPQ.Review:
"This work endeavors to educate readers on the theory, framework, language, applications, methods, and uncertainties involved in pest risk analysis, and in communicating that risk to stakeholders. The book's 20 chapters, largely written by eight authors from the US Department of Agriculture, focus on the fundamental role science plays in the complex workings of GATT and the interface with the economics and politics that permeate these matters. The scientists are primarily empowered to identify what is known about pest risk and then, by informing other stakeholders/decision makers in this process, take actions on a case-by-case basis. The authors contend that the pest risk analysis has become a sufficiently complex process to now be recognized as an emerging field of study. This book will help students prepare to enter the field and professionals to teach and practice their science in this rapidly evolving era. Summing Up: Recommended." (M.K. Harris, emeritus, Texas A&M University)

It informs decisions for regulatory plant protection, from domestic activities such as prioritizing pests for surveillance to making quarantine decisions regarding the importation of products. This text provides a solid foundation in pest risk analysis and its application to regulatory plant protection. Basic methods for pest risk analysis are addressed, including how they can be used to solve real life problems in the context of national and international rules, regulations, requirements, laws and agreements. Written by practicing risk analysts, the text is enhanced with examples of methods and applications, many of which are based on real analyses performed by plant protection organizations. Understanding of basic tools and methods is encouraged to enable the reader to prepare, review and develop scientifically sound and technically defensible pest risk analyses. This is an essential resource for students in agricultural sciences, and regulatory plant protection professionals wishing to learn about pest risk analysis: why we do it, how it s done, and what it requires.
