During the past several years an emerging spirit of cooperation and constructive dialogue has arisen among key stakeholders for resolution of procedural and scientific issues associated with regulation of pesticides under the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide and Rodenticide Act (FIFRA) and the Endangered Species Act (ESA). The constructive dialogue first experienced at a 2011 ACS AGRO symposium has now carried over into the 24 contributed chapters assembled by ACS into a new symposium series book. The book captures diverse viewpoints and, as had been true for the symposium, contributors went beyond outlining present difficulties and included specific recommendations for improvements. The objectives of this webinar are to highlight noteworthy recommendations from the recently released book and to further advance constructive dialogue.
