Invasive Species and Economics

In the latest issue of the online journal Conservation Ecology, you can read an article by Perrings et al. entitled "Biological Invasion Risks and the Public Good: an Economic Perspective." It's a very interesting discussion piece on the major role economics plays in the spread and management of non-native invasives. While the article does focus mainly on diseases, it makes policy recommendations that can be applied to all organisms (my favorite: insurance for importers of non-native species). Also in the same issue is an article by Graeme Cumming about modeling invasions, "Habitat Shape, Species Invasions, and Reserve Design: Insights from Simple Models"
