I am coordinating the content for the Invasive Species Compendium which includes prioritizing species coverage, commissioning datasheets from experts, liaising with partner organizations, and editing/updating information for publication.
In my 20 years at CABI I have worked on many publications in the field of plant health but most extensively on pest distribution data and information for pest risk analysis as an editor of the Crop Protection Compendium.
Invasive species are causing species extinction. We are trying to address this problem by providing sound scientific information that will be used by endangered species managers to improve their efforts to recover listed and candidate species affected by invasive species. The information will also be used by invasive species managers to control invasive species that are causing species extinction in the USA.
