The historical occurrence and distribution patterns of native forest pests have been modified, or are expected to be modified in the next decade, as a result of climate change. At the same time, the risks posed by invasive alien species are expected to increase as international trade and traffic grow.
Three monitoring scenarios, including approximate costs, have been developed to guide decision-making in developing an ecosystem-based monitoring program.
The goal with this scenario approach—Good, Better, Best—is to enhance existing programs while encouraging nation-wide harmonization and development of best practices.
