Abstract:

Exotic pest introductions are a global threat occurring at an unprecedented rate. Comprehensive research programs are required at the onset to prevent the spread of the invasive insects, pathogens or plants, and rehabilitate and restore native habitats and ecosystems. Unfortunately, much of the current research on invasives is piecemeal. Past experiences with exotic and native pests provide some valuable lessons about how we should approach research programs on invasive organisms. The infrastructure required for effectively administering comprehensive research programs is complex. An example is discussed.
