Alien Invasive Species and International Trade – Hugh Evans and Tomasz Oszako

Edited by Hugh Evans and Tomasz Oszako. Forest Research Institute, Sękocin Stary, 2007. ISBN 978-83-87647-64-3, 180 pp. FREE. There is available pdf format at$FILE/IUFRO_Jedlnia_2006.pdf

The papers collected in this volume arose from the first meeting of IUFRO Working Party 7.03.12, Alien Invasive Species and International Trade, held in Jedlnia, Poland in July 2006. They cover all aspects of potentially invasive pests and pathogens; invasive weeds are not covered. Chapters include reviews of current and potential alien invasive species in different parts of the world, specific pest risk analyses, the impacts of different Phytophthora species in forests, potentially important insects, methods for managing the problems, and a particular focus on ISPM-15, a success story in international cooperation on phytosanitary regulations.
