Abstract: There may be as many as 1,000 introduced and native invasive species in B.C. Most introduced species do not result in a pervasive cascade of ecological changes, but there is the potential for significant impacts when a novel species is able to successfully enter and thrive within an ecosystem, replacing endemic species and possibly altering pre-existing trophic relationships. When significant ecosystem changes take place, there is the added potential of direct impacts to human populations, as well as impacts upon the ecosystem services which human communities may depend upon. The goal of the project was to begin to frame an ecological and economic analysis of invasive animal species; selecting case studies which represent different taxonomic groups and a range of issues (see Section 1.2). Preliminary impact hypotheses (e.g. Figure 4.2) were created for 5 invasive groups: zebra and quagga mussels, European fire ant, Asian carp, Sitka black-tailed deer and European starling; but special quantitative emphasis was placed on the first two groups, since they were expected to provide the strongest foundation of recent empirical economic research. Zebra mussel and quagga mussel are closely related species which have not yet been observed in B.C., while European fire ant is now found in some locations, mostly in southwestern B.C....
