Biosurveillance: Efforts to Develop a National Biosurveillance Capability Need a National Strategy and a Designated Leader (Jun 30, 2010)
U.S. Government Accountability Office.
GAO-10-645.
The U.S. government has a history of employing health surveillance to help limit malady, loss of life, and economic impact of diseases. Recent legislation and presidential directives have called for a robust and integrated biosurveillance capability -- the ability to provide early detection and situational awareness of potentially catastrophic biological events. GAO reviewed federal biosurveillance programs, plans, and strategies and interviewed agency officials from components of 12 federal departments with biosurveillance responsibilities.

Climate Change Indicators in the United States (Apr 2010)
Environmental Protection Agency.
The report indicates the timing of natural events, such as flower blooms and animal migration, is influenced by changes in climate. Scientists have very high confidence that recent warming trends in global climate are linked to an earlier arrival of spring events. An earlier spring might lead to longer growing seasons more abundant invasive species and pests and earlier and longer allergy seasons.

Eco-Logical: An Ecosystem Approach to Developing Infrastructure Projects (March 2006) and (PDF | 2.16 MB)
DOT. Federal Highway Administration.
Eco-Logical was produced by an eight-agency steering team, including FHWA, the Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, NOAA National Marine Fisheries, the Bureau of Land Management, the National Park Service, and the U.S. Forest Service. The ecosystem approach contained in Eco-Logical shifts the Federal government's traditional focus on individual agency jurisdiction to the integrated actions of multiple agencies. It emphasizes increased voluntary contributions from all stakeholders, including the public, to a collaboratively developed vision of desired future conditions that incorporates ecological, economic, and social factors. It is applied within a geographic framework defined primarily by ecological rather than political boundaries. Eco-Logical will be an important tool for strengthening the link between transportation planning and NEPA.

Global Indicators of Biological Invasion: Species Numbers, Biodiversity Impact and Policy Responses (Jan 2010) - Abstract / Press Release - Impact of Nature's Invading Aliens Measured for First Time (Jan 22, 2010)
International Union for Conservation of Nature.
Invasive alien species, ranging from disease and plants, to rats and goats, are one of the top three threats to life on this planet, according to a new publication coordinated by the Global Invasive Species Programme, of which IUCN is a partner. The authors looked at 57 countries and found that, on average, there are 50 non-indigenous species per country which have a negative impact on biodiversity.

Globalization Burdens Future Generations with Biological Invasions (Dec 20, 2010)
Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research.
A new study on biological invasions based on extensive data of alien species from 10 taxonomic groups and 28 European countries has shown that patterns of established alien species richness are more related to historical levels of socio-economic drivers than to contemporary ones. An international group of 16 researchers reported the new findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America (PNAS) article Socioeconomic legacy yields an invasion debt. The researchers found that the frequent delay between the first introduction of a species in a new territory and its establishment and spread suggest that invasions triggered by current economic behavior will possibly take a long time to become fully realized, causing an "invasion debt". The publication resulted from the three-year project DAISIE (Delivering Alien Invasive Inventory for Europe, funded by European Union within its 6th Framework Programme.

Prepare for Invasion: Natural England Publishes New Forecast on the Non-Native Animals Threatening to Take Hold (May 22, 2009)
Natural England.
To mark International Biodiversity Day 2009, Natural England published a major report (Horizon Scanning for New Invasive Non-Native Animal Species in England) identifying the potential for a number of non-native animal species to increase in number in England and become invasive. Non-native species pose one of the biggest threats to England's natural biodiversity and ecosystems. Of 161 species evaluated, 84 were categorised as medium to high risk in terms of the likelihood of their becoming invasive and the disruption they could have on our natural environment and native wildlife.

The Economic Cost of Invasive Non-Native Species to the British Economy (PDF | 1.4 MB) / Press Release - Cost of Invasive Non-native Species – Early Eradication Lessens Impact (Dec 15, 2010)
Great Britain Non-native Species Secretariat; Scottish Goverment.
The financial cost of non-native species has been published in a new report. "The Economic Cost of Invasive Non-Native Species (INNS) to the British Economy" suggests that invasive species cost 1.7 billion pounds every year. The research was conducted by the international scientific organization CABI for the Scottish Government, Defra and the Welsh Assembly Government and breaks down the effect on each country. It indicates that the economic cost of INNS can be wide ranging and can result in the loss of crops, ecosystems and livelihoods. The cost to the agriculture and horticulture sector alone is estimated to be 1 billion pounds across Britain. See Great Britain Non-native Species Secretariat - Reports for the full report and supporting document.
