US Geological Survey researchers will present their research on modeling and decision science that informs management of invasive species.  The session will include examples of models developed to inform life history of invasive species and how those models are used to inform the structured decision making process for developing management actions. Examples will include Burmese pythons in the Everglades, Silver Carp and Bighead Carp in the Tennessee/Cumberland basin, and dreissenid mussels in the west. Please join us!
