September 2019 issue of Management of Biological Invasions is now online!
This issue presents research from sixteen countries in Europe, North, Central, and South America, Asia, and Africa!

Models and network analysis used to simulate ballast water scenarios in the Great Lakes suggest that shore based treatment systems could impede spread of new or localized species.

Silver carp Hypophthalmichthys nobilis are literally hopping mad from new acoustic control methods that aim to deter passage in freshwater systems.

Research into eradication of the invasive Asian clam Corbicula fluminea is literally on fire! Just three seconds of exposure to an open flame can cause complete mortality.

Multiple stressors! Global warming and spread of the non-native common slider Trachemys scripta threaten the range of the European pond turtle.

The American bullfrog Lithobates catesbeianus is found on all continents and now the Republic of Korea have taken leaps and bounds to chart its introduction, establishment, and tailor a management program to the local ecology and landscapes.

Balancing costs against the need for humane toxicant products. A product feasibility assessment of new toxic baiting pesticides for the invasive mongoose Herpestes javanicus auropunctatus provides a template for other vertebrate pests.

Exciting new developments in the application of eDNA for detection! This has been validated for two freshwater crustaceans, the invasive amphipod Dikerogammarus haemobaphes and the parthenogenetic crayfish Procambarus virginalis.

Finally, some good news stories about eradication and management over large temporal and spatial scales:

Ten-year long management of the invasive plant Egeria densa with fluridone herbicide treatments is associated with increases in the native Potamogeton richardsonii.

Quagga mussels Dreissena rostiformis bugensis have been completely eradicated from an entire lake in Pennsylvania following copper treatments.

In China, the growth of the invasive weed Ageratina adenophora is being suppressed as the proportion of native sweet potato Ipomotea batatas increases.
