WRA 101 – Weed Risk Assessment Workshop
Jun 19-22, 2012
USDA-APHIS-PPQ Center for Plant Health Science and Technology in Raleigh, North Carolina
This 4-day workshop is an introduction to the USDA-APHIS Plant Protection and Quarantine's (PPQ) Weed Risk Assessment (WRA) Model. Through a series of presentations, discussions, and exercises, the workshop teaches participants how to conduct and interpret weed risk assessments (WRA) using the newly developed PPQ WRA model. The model uses information about biology, behavior elsewhere, and distribution to evaluate the risk potential of the species. In addition to describing and characterizing risk, the WRA process also evaluates the impact of uncertainty on the results and uses a simple climate matching tool to determine the potential area of the United States suitable for species establishment.
Costs – there is no registration cost to attend the workshop, but each participant is responsible for their own travel costs.
