Early detection/Rapid Response outcomes and prognosis
various
Are we collecting the right data the right way?; how effective have HISC funded eradication projects been?; how do we get to effective?; dissemination of research effective?
50
economic analysesvarious
What are the economic and social benefits from prevention, early detection, and rapid response? What are the potential costs to Hawaii from NOT managing (or under managing) a new invasive species? Developing a rapid assessment tool.
51
supporting state infrastructurevarious
State Herbarium (Herbarium Pacificum at Bishop Museum): specimens access and submission deficient?; does not have a PhD botanist on staff
