The Invasive Species Program conducts research and develops methods and technologies to prevent the introduction of invasive species. As part of their strategic plan, they strive to:

  • Develop methodologies and approaches for identification, quantification, monitoring, and managing pathways and associated vectors of transport.
  • Develop methodologies for assessing the effectiveness of prevention methods and technologies (e.g., ballast water treatment).
  • Research on interacting environmental processes, socioeconomic factors, and human behaviors that influence the contributions of various pathways and vectors to the introduction and spread of known or potentially invasive species.
