Species: Impacts, Challenges, and Strategies
for Management (Mar 7, 2012) - Recorded Video Presentation
Resources for the Future.
At this seminar, panelists tackled these issues
from a variety of perspectives, including examination
of recent efforts to quantify the impacts of invasive
species on the Great Lakes ecosystem, discussion
of cost-efficient strategies to manage new and
established invaders, and exploration of how cross-jurisdictional
spread of invasive species hinders management.
A global perspective was provided in an overview
of the U.S. State Department's
engagement on these issues, and novel approaches
for combating invasive species through market creation
were discussed. The seminar engaged expert panelists
to help forge insight to improved management and
new strategies for reducing the enormous economic
and ecological impacts of invasive species.

reviews developments in state laws and regulations
governing invasive species in eleven states.
It finds that invasive species laws and regulations
are often fragmented and incomplete and have
developed primarily on a species-by-species basis
in response to crisis. As a result, they often
fail to address potential future invaders or
close off known invasion pathways. Fortunately,
states have begun regulating invasion pathways
and identifying species that may become invasive
in the future due to climate change or other
factors. States are increasingly creating interagency
councils and management plans to coordinate these
novel invasive species responses.
