Predicting the economic impact of an Invasive species on an Ecosystem service

Cook, David; Thomas, Matthew B.; Cunningham, Saul; Anderson, Denis L; De Barro, P.

Description

Quantifying the impact of alien invasive species on ecosystem services is an essential step in developing effective practices and policy for invasive species management. Here we develop a stochastic bioeconomic model that enables the economic impact of an invasive pest to be estimated before its arrival, based on relatively poorly specified ecological and economic parameters. We developed the model by using a hypothetical invasion of the varroa bee mite (Varroa destructor) into Australia and...[Show more]
