Not so new, but still rings true

Back in 2001, Don Schmitz and Daniel Simberloff published an article titled Needed: A National Center for Biological Invasions. In it, they discuss the necessity of having coordination among the various regional and federal agencies, experts, and non-governmental groups involved in invasive species management. It may be three years old, but the article is still quite valid today. Sharing of resources will likely be the key to controlling invasives, especially in a time where environmental funds are being stretched thin. And invasive species (humans notwithstanding :-)) don't give a darn about political boundaries.
