Abstract Nonindigenous invasive weed species can have substantial negative impacts on the quantity and quality of outdoor recreational activities such as fishing, hunting, hiking, wildlife viewing, and water-based recreation. Despite the significance of impacts on recreation, very little research has been performed to estimate the corresponding economic losses at spatial scales such as regions, states, and watersheds. This is true primarily because in most jurisdictions the data necessary to… Expand
The underestimated dynamics and impacts of water-based recreational activities on freshwater ecosystems
Abstract Recreational activities on, in and along freshwaters (e.g., boating, bathing, angling) positively contribute to human well-being, but can concurrently stress aquatic ecosystems. WhileExpand
outdoor recreation and invasive species at Presque Isle State Park
Among the many challenges park managers face today, the impact of invasive species has been increasingly evident. Managing invasive species requires knowledge and skills in areas such as naturalExpand
Economic and Social Impacts of Wildfires and Invasive Plants in American Deserts: Lessons From the Great Basin
Abstract Research on the impacts of wildfire and invasive plants in rangelands has focused on biophysical rather than human dimensions of these environmental processes. We offer a syntheticExpand
RANGELAND CONSERVATION ANALYSIS # 2 CONTROLLING CHEATGRASS AND WOODY SPECIES INVASION IN THE GREAT BASIN
  • 2012
The Issue Invasive species, widely distributed across the western United States, pose critical conservation challenges on both non-Federal and Federal rangelands. Two of the biggest threats toExpand
Invasive plant cover impacts the desirability of lands for conservation acquisition
Invasive species are of increasing concern to conservation organizations due to their ecological and economic impacts. But while many studies have addressed the economic impact of invasive species,Expand
Predicting Kudzu (Pueraria montana) spread and its economic impacts in timber industry: A case study from Oklahoma
TLDR
The predicted economic loss due to kudzu expansion could act as an incentive for appropriate management practices and plans to be implemented and should be implemented. Expand
Social preferences for invasive plant management: A case Study from the interior Northwest of the United States
Improved understanding of the benefits of invasive species management is necessary to inform economically efficient invasive species management and policy. Motivated by this need in the InteriorExpand
Broadening the Case for Invasive Species Management to Include Impacts on Ecosystem Services
In addition to their negative impacts on biodiversity, alien plant species often affect ecosystem processes in ways that degrade ecosystem services for humans, resulting in economic losses. TimelyExpand
A framework for sustainable invasive species management: Environmental, social, and economic objectives.
TLDR
This paper outlines specific objectives in each of these three "pillars" that, if incorporated into a management plan, will improve the plan's likelihood of sustainability and encourages agency directors and policy-makers to consider sustainability principles when developing funding schemes, management agendas, and policy.

Implications of land use/land cover dynamics and Prosopis invasion on ecosystem service values in Afar Region, Ethiopia.
TLDR
This study provides evidence that LULC changes in the Afar Region have led to a significant loss in ESVs, with serious consequences for the livelihoods of the rural people. Expand

Potential Environmental Impacts and Economic Damages of Eurasian Watermilfoil (Myriophyllum spicatum) in Western Nevada and Northeastern California1
Abstract: Eurasian watermilfoil, an aquatic invasive weed, has been identified recently at a number of sites in western Nevada and northeastern California, including Lake Tahoe. Because EurasianExpand
Uncertainty, Economics, and the Spread of an Invasive Plant Species
TLDR
An expert survey of the spread and damage caused by an invasive plant species that adversely affects rangeland in California and Nevada is developed, using a stochastic dynamic programming (SDP) model to identify economically optimal management choices from a portfolio of potential options. Expand
An Analysis of Trends in Net Economic Values for Bass Fishing from the National Survey of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife-Associated Recreation
Economic trend information is important to many fisheries managers. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's series of National Surveys of Fishing, Hunting, and Wildlife Associated Recreation has been aExpand
Managing Nonindigenous Invasive Species: Insights from Dynamic Analysis
TLDR
An optimal control model of the management of a nonindigenous species stock following its introduction and establishment is developed and provides useful insight on optimal levels of ongoing management and how they may vary according to bioeconomic factors. Expand
Biological invasions by exotic grasses, the grass/fire cycle, and global change
Biological invasions into wholly new regions are a consequence of a far reaching but underappreciated component of global environmental change, the human-caused breakdown of biogeographic barriers toExpand
Assessing economic impacts of biological control of weeds: The case of leafy spurge in the northern Great Plains of the United States
Leafy spurge (Euphorbia esulaL.), a perennial weed native to Europe and Asia, has become a serious problem for ranchers and land managers in the northern Great Plains region of the United States.Expand
Methods for Management of Nonindigenous Aquatic Plants
TLDR
Numerous terrestrial plant communities have been invaded by nonindigenous (NI) plant species that have disrupted community dynamics and ecosystem processes and invoke similar approaches to their management. Expand
Economic Thresholds and the Case for Longer Term Approaches to Population Management of Weeds1
TLDR
A paradigm shift from thresholds to longer term population management is warranted and the principles of natural resource economics illustrate that including the intertemporal effects of weeds control will result in a greater level of weed control and a higher economic benefit than if control decisions were based solely on the current period effects. Expand
Economic impact of leafy spurge (Euphorbia esula) in North Dakota
TLDR
The impacts on rancher incomes and regional economies suggest the potential economic returns of leafy spurge control could be substantial, and a rangeland economics model was developed to estimate the economic impacts. Expand
Water Use by Tamarix Ramosissima and Associated Phreatophytes in a Mojave Desert Floodplain
TLDR
Results from this and other studies demonstrate that, at least under moderate to high water tables, key variables controlling water use by riparian stands include structural character- istics such as LAI and density. Expand
