Abstract:

The rate of invasive species introductions into the United States has steadily increased over the past 20 years. Coupled with ever-increasing human activity has been a steady increase in movement of invasive species resulting in many introductions of species into new landscapes National Invasive Species Council NISC 2001. These introductions can pose serious threats to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers USACE installations and projects and their impact is only expected to worsen. This article summarizes some new and novel approaches to invasion biology that can be used to predict species movements across broad geographic regions and local landscapes.
