An Emerging Triad: Air Pollution, Beetles, and Wildfire

Winter 2010

This 'Science Perspectives' report, from the Pacific Southwest Research Station of the U.S. Forest Service, discusses biochemical changes in trees stressed by drought and air pollution. Such changes may attract bark beetles, overwhelming the trees' defense mechanisms and increasing their vulnerability to disease, death and the promotion of wildfires. These forest impacts are exacerbated by climate change.

Building Public Support for Floodplain Management: Guidebook

February 2010

This document provides guidance to enable better communication by floodplain managers to community stakeholders in regard to changes in flooding conditions and regulations. This is a particularly challenging field because, as the authors explain, current (as of 2010) economic incentives created by the National Flood Insurance Program make mitigating hazards in flood-prone areas difficult. Consequently, the report explains how floodplain managers can better understand stakeholders' goals, explain flood hazards, provide explanations of new policies, and implement outreach and education programs.
