Opportunities for improved risk assessment of exotic species in Canada using bioclimatic modelling

McKenney, Daniel; Hopkin, Anthony; Campbell, Kathy; Mackey, Brendan; Foottit, Robert

Description

This paper briefly reviews the process of exotic pest risk assessments and presents some examples of emerging opportunities for spatial bioclimatic modeling of exotic species in Canada. This type of analysis can support risk assessments but does not replace the need for on-going high quality field-based observations to validate and update models. Bioclimatic analysis of several exotic pests is provided to illustrate both opportunities and limits. A link is demonstrated to the National Forest...[Show more]
