Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellowship: Biological invasions in forestry: drivers, predictors and mitigation for biosecurity and industry

This project will (1) work alongside industry to manage current and emerging invasive forest species in Queensland; (2) analyse historical invasions of exotic forest pests to identify drivers of invasion; (3) examine export/import pathways and patterns of insect interceptions and detections across the biosecurity chain; (4) identify biological traits and spatial-temporal factors linked with establishment; (5) use these data to optimise surveillance strategies. Findings will help identify drivers and predictors of invasion, assist policy-makers to develop prevention, early detection and eradication strategies, and minimise the impact of invasions on the forest industry through early warning, spread mitigation, and management.
