About the Author:

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)
