Abstract Invasive species pose some of the greatest environmental and economic threats to the Nations forests, grasslands, and waterways. To ensure the continued production of needed goods, services, and values from our Nations terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, the Forest Service, an agency of the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), must implement a strategic systems approach for managing invasive species. This Forest Service National Strategic Framework for Invasive Species Management (Framework) prioritizes and guides the prevention, detection, and control of invasive insects, pathogens, plants, wildlife, and fish that threaten our Nations terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems.
