Title Embracing Disturbance: a New Paradigm for the Precautionary Principle in Riparian Zones
Creator Agee, James
Subject riparian forests fire science and management forest fire management forest fires forest ecology precautionary principle risk management decision making environmental management fire regime water
Description Agee will question the precautionary principle, which works well in some situations, but may lead to negative results. As an example, he will discuss fire regimes in riparian zones. He will argue that in dynamic systems, choices must be evaluated in a risk management context: place, history, current condition, and risk must all be considered. "No action" must be assessed as compared to "active management."
