Assessing the Environmental Impacts of Agriculture:
Reannouncing Ag-Impact, an E-Mail Discussion Group

The Ag-Impact Internet discussion group is an international forum for
discussing issues, problems, and progress in developing methods for
assessing the environmental impacts of agriculture.  We hope the discussion
will be useful and interesting to the growing body of researchers and
practitioners working to develop environmental impact assessment systems
and to those involved in the application of environmental impact assessment

We invite you to participate in this dialog.

Ag-Impact provides a forum for open discussion on topics such as:

*  Descriptions of objectives and methods of measurement systems
   models/tools) which assess environmental impacts of agriculture
*  Critiques of environmental impact assessment (EIA) systems, methods,      
   and approaches
*  Identification of target audiences and appropriate uses for different   
   EIA tools
*  Presentation and interpretation results of EIA
*  Adaptation of existing EIA tools to other settings
*  Data and databases for agricultural EIA: sources, availability,     
   quality, identification of and dealing with gaps, etc.
*  Appropriate environmental indicators, test endpoints and decision        
*  Relevant conference and seminar announcements, calls for papers and
   research/extension proposals, job announcements, abstracts and  
   reviews of articles and reports, and interim research reports 
*  Announcement of research plans to encourage collaboration and/or  
   reduce overlap in effort.
