PREISM Workshop 2004

Review and Workshop
Program of Research on the
Economics of Invasive Species Management

Washington , DC August 19-20, 2004

This workshop reviewed the progress of research funded by the Economic Research Service's Program of Reseach on the Economics of Invasive Species Management. Participants provided ideas for strengthening those projects and set an agenda for future action. Many of the research issues were identified in a May 2003 workshop on the economic issues of invasive species in agriculture. Both workshops were a collaboration of USDA's Economic Research Service and Farm Foundation.
