Abstract
This working group will explore whether federal records on interceptions of non-native forest pests and pathogens can be used to identify species that may colonize the United States during the next several decades. The group will attempt to estimate the economic and ecological costs of such colonizations given different volumes and origins of trade. In addition, the group will explore how different policies related to interdiction, detection, or eradication may affect costs.
