Invasive Non-Native Species: Background and Issues for Congress

Description:

This report compares an approach based on a species-by-species assessment, vs.
one based on pathways of entry. It also assesses the choice of an emphasis on
prevention vs. post hoc control and intra-state quarantine. It describes existing
federal laws and federal agency roles, federal interagency cooperation, and the federal
interaction with state governments. Finally, it outlines effects, costs, and issues
surrounding 47 selected harmful non-native species.
