TER-S

DoD Pacific Islands Region Threatened, Endangered, and At-Risk Species Workshop Proceedings (Legacy 06-298) (PDF)

These proceedings detail the DoDs Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP), Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), and Legacy Resource Management Program (Legacy)-sponsored workshop held on 6-8 June 2006 in Honolulu, Hawaii. The specific objectives were to: 1) identify and prioritize TER-S management needs among the Pacific Region Islands; 2) examine the current state of practice within DoD for TER-S management; 3) identify the gaps in knowledge, technology, and management; and 4) prioritize investment opportunities to address these gaps. To achieve these objectives, workshop sponsors and organizers brought together a broad spectrum of discipline experts from the research and management communities, including federal and state agencies, academia, and the non-governmental conservation community. This proceedings document summarizes workshop discussions and identifies priority information gaps.
