FY18 Funded Project Presentation - Workflows to support integrated predictive science capacity: Forecasting invasive species for natural resource planning and risk assessment - Jake Weltzin, USGS
Timely information regarding the risk of activity of invasive plant and animal species, which are biological hazards, is critical for efficient detection and control efforts by resource managers. The USA National Phenology Network produces and delivers national-scale real-time and short-term forecast maps indicating the optimal time to detect and treat problematic, invasive insect pests including emerald ash borer and hemlock wooly adelgid. These risk maps enhance decision-making and short-term planning by both natural resource managers and members of the public.
The project created workflows and modular, transferable tools and services to benefit USGS and associated stakeholder communities. A key outcome is improved capacity within USGS for ecological forecasting, risk assessment and translational (co-produced) science related to biological hazards. Key stakeholders include natural resource managers within protected areas such as national parks and wildlife refuges, and within lands managed by municipalities, states, tribes and private landholders.
Jake F. Weltzin is a USGS Ecologist. He serves as the Program Manager for the Status & Trends Program in the Ecosystems Mission Area, and the Director of the USA National Phenology Network.
