    Description

    The success of an invasive species is in large part due to favorable conditions resulting from the complex interactions among natural and anthropogenic factors such as native and nonnative pests, fires, droughts, hurricanes, wind storms, ice storms, climate warming, management practices, human travel, and trade. Reducing the negative effects of invasive species and other disturbances on our natural resources is a major priority. Meeting this goal will require an understanding of the complex interactions among disturbances, development of tools to minimize new invasions, and effective management of systems that have already been changed by invasive species. In this paper, we suggest desired resource outcomes; we offer considerations for developing management strategies, policies, and practices needed to achieve these outcomes; and we note potential interactions of invasive species with other disturbances.
