2006 Economic Impacts Baseline Report (2008)

This report discusses the results of an economic impact analysis on invasive plant management in BC; the collection of activities with the objective of preventing the introduction and spread of invasive plants. Baseline information was collected during this project to be used as a dataset for the economic impact analysis. The baseline information included: invasive plant management activities and program components, expenditures on invasive plant management, and the current (2008) ecological status of 20 selected invasive plant species at the regional and provincial landscape scale.
