Developing cost-effective early detection networks for regional invasions


A paper by AW Crall, M Renz, BJ Panke, CJ Newman, C Chapin, J Graham, and C Bargeron published in Biological Invasions (14:12), 2012.

Authors discuss the features of and methods used to develop the Great Lakes Early Detection Network (GLEDN) website. Using results from stakeholder discussions, authors provide a cost-effective framework for online Early Detection Rapid Response (EDRR) networks that integrates data and develops social capital through a virtual community. This framework seeks to provide real-time data on current species distributions and improve across jurisdictional collaboration with limited oversight.
