The impact of invasive species has grown substantially in recent years as evident by the trends in government expenditures in response to outbreaks.

The conceptual models are built to describe the relationship between producers’ utility and the effect of adoption of different measures under different observability condition. As a case study, a survey is designed to analyze producer behavior in mitigating AI & END outbreaks.
