Whilst the ecological impacts of invasion by alien species have been well documented, little is known of the economic costs incurred. The impacts of invasive alien species on the economy can be wide-ranging, from management costs, to loss of crops, to infrastructure damage. However, details on these cost estimates are still lacking, particularly at national and regional scales. In this study, we use data from the first global assessment of economic costs of invasive alien species (InvaCost…

Although the high costs of invasion are frequently cited and are a key motivation for environmental management and policy, synthesised data on invasion costs are scarce. Here, we quantify and examine

Abstract An assessement of the alien plants of Romania was conducted which considered the requirements of Regulation 1143/2014 of the European Union (EU). Thus, available data about the presence,

Metal accumulation in relation to size and body condition in an all-alien species community
TLDR
To assess the intraspecific relationship between metal accumulation and size and health of individuals, the concentration of 14 metals was analyzed in six alien species from the highly anthropogenically altered Arno River and only predatory fish species presented significant relationships, suggesting that feeding habits are one of the primary drivers of metal accumulation.

TLDR
The results indicate that the highest costs are attributable to unintentionally introduced AIS and that the most reliable cost estimates are related to human and animal health.
Economic Impacts of Invasive Species in Forests
TLDR
It is proposed that new methods for evaluating aggregate economic damages from forest‐invasive species need to be developed that quantify market and nonmarket impacts at microscales that are then extended using spatially explicit models to provide aggregate estimates of impacts.

TLDR
The invacost R package is introduced, an open-source software designed to query and analyse the InvaCost database, an instrumental resource for invasion ecological research and expertise, and provides a standard procedure which will facilitate reproducibility and comparability among studies.
Economics of Harmful Invasive Species: A Review
TLDR
A relatively large body of literature on the assessment of damage costs of invasive species; single species and groups of species at different geographical scales is revealed; however, the estimated damage costs show large variation, depending on the methods employed, geographical scale, and scope with respect to inclusion of different species.
