Establishment and spread of invasive forest insects

The number of non-native forest insects that establish in new regions increases strongly as a result of global trade. This results in large negative effects on native biodiversity and ecosystem services.


This research project is aimed at studying which factors are most important for establishment and spread of non-native forest insects. Knowledge about this will contribute to more efficient methods for early detection and control of invasive species.
