On November 3 and 4, 2011, the National Academy of Science’s National Research Council will hold its first meetings on EPA’s ESA consultations with FWS and NMFS for pesticides. This NRC project is entitled Ecological Risk Assessment Under FIFRA and ESA. During it, NRC will examine scientific and technical issues related to the methods and assumptions used by EPA, FWS, and NMFS to assess ecological risks to ESA-listed species from FIFRA-registered pesticides.  Information on these meetings will be posted at the NAS project website, http://www8.nationalacademies.org/cp/projectview.aspx?key=49396 /
