New Invasive Species Locations Detected
Performance Measure 17 - New Invasive Species Locations Detected
Definition The number of new locations of an invasive species found in the Tahoe Basin. This PM tracks new locations of species already known to be present in the Tahoe Basin and does not track detections of species new to the Basin. Early detection reduces cost and increases effectiveness of control efforts. Control of eradication of invasive species allows natural ecosystem processes and habitats to support healthy populations of native species.

Critical Definitions

Control – To suppress, reduce or manage invasive species populations, prevent spread of invasive species from areas where they are present and take steps such as restoration of native species and habitats to reduce the effects of invasive species and to prevent further invasions.

Eradicate – To completely eliminate an invasive species from a specific part or all of the Tahoe Basin

New detection – A documented presence of an invasive species in a location where it was not found during the previous survey.

Accounting Period and Scale

New locations of invasive species are recorded and entered into the EIP Database within thirty days of detection.
