Both invasive species and their biological control agents face barriers to expansion, which provide opportunities to limit invasions or may enable target invasive species to exist in enemy-free space. A better understanding of the various barriers to the spread of insects introduced to control invasive plants will allow for more targeted release programs and potentially shorter lag times from introduction to management. In the Pacific Northwest of the United States, two seed eating beetles… Expand
