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.

"I study both lakes and terrestrial islands, which are ecological kissing cousins because their relative isolation creates a sensitivity to non-native species introductions," says Dr. Meghan Brown, an academic scientist at Hobart & William Smith Colleges.

Researcher Spotlight: Dr. Bianca Lopez

"Being able to predict which non-native species are likely to become invasive is kind of a holy grail of invasion biology that we hope to help reach," says Dr. Bianca Lopez, who studies the combined effects of invasive species and environmental change.
