Volume 1: Region/ORD Nonindigenous Species Workshop Reports summarizes the presentations and discussions from five Regional nonindigenous species workshops conducted during 1999 and 2000, and a national nonindigenous species workshop held in Washington, DC on July 12 and 13, 2000. Based on the issues raised in the Regional workshops, the National Workshop focused on ballast water, wetlands, Total Maximum Daily Loads (TMDLs), and pesticides. Volume 2: A Landscape in Transition: Effects of Invasive Species on Ecosystems, Human Health, and EPA Goals is a post-workshop authored by Drs. Henry Lee and John Chapman. One goal of this paper is to provide an overview of the types of impacts invasive species have on ecosystem services, human health, and economics. Another goal is to explore how invasive species can impact the implementation of EPA's goals and mandates, and how EPA's regulations relate to the management of invasive species.
