Mystery solved? DNA barcoding reveals new snail in Adirondacks

How do we make use of new and existing technologies for early detection of aquatic invasive species? This study demonstrates how DNA barcoding can aid in identification of non-indigenous mollusks from New York’s waterways.

Emerging from the forest: invasive plant removal impacts on salamanders

With Spring setting in, plants are not the only thing emerging from the forest floor. Many frog and salamander species are on the move, but how might invasive plant management impact these ecologically important taxa?

The costs of inaction: Global invasive species spending reveals lack of proactive management

Using the InvaCost database, this study reports the most up-to-date and exhaustive overview of global spending for invasive species management, revealing important insights into spending trends and the cost of inaction.

Sensing the need to bridge the research-practice divide for invasive species detection and monitoring

A team of researchers and practitioners tackles the disconnect between research and application in the field of remote sensing for invasive species, summarizing 40+ years of literature and experience.

An approach that TIEs together actionable research and management | Research summary

To round out the year, we’re sharing an approach that TIEs together actionable research with invasive species management and policy decisions, called Translational Invasion Ecology (TIE).
