led the development of guidance documents for ecological risk assessments, such as the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Framework for Metals Risk Assessment, the British Columbia Ministry of Environment’s guidance for implementing Tier 1 ecological risk assessments of contaminated sites, and EPA’s ecological soil screening levels. Recently, she served on a science advisory panel for the state of Utah and as a consultant to the British Columbia Ministry of Environment to set site-specific water-quality standards for selenium that protect fish and wildlife. Dr. Fairbrother has served as president of the Society of Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry, the American Association of Wildlife Veterinarians, and the Wildlife Disease Association. In addition, she has been a member of the National Research Council’s Committee on Animals as Monitors of Environmental Hazards. Dr. Fairbrother earned a DVM from the University of California, Davis and a PhD in veterinary science from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
