Invazivna tujerodna rastlinska vrsta kudzu (Pueraria montana var. lobata) je potencialna grožnja za slovenske gozdove
Jana Kus Veenvliet, Aleksander Marinšek, Janez Kermavnar, Lado Kutnar, Maarten De Groot, 2019

Abstract: Kudzu (Pueraria montana var. lobata) je invazivna tujerodna rastlinska vrsta, za katero v Sloveniji do pred nedavnim ni bilo podatkov o pojavljanju v naravi. Poleti 2018 sta bili v informacijskem sistemu Invazivke (www.invazivke.si) potrjeni prvi najdbi kudzuja pri nas v naravnem okolju. V tej podatkovni bazi se kot podpora za sistem zgodnjega obveščanja in hitrega odzivanja (ZOHO), ki se razvija v sklopu projekta LIFE ARTEMIS, zbirajo podatki o invazivnih tujerodnih vrstah pri nas. Obe nahajališči kudzuja sta v submediteranskem fitogeografskem območju Slovenije, v bližini Strunjana in v Dekanih. Namen članka je predstaviti osnovne značilnosti invazivne rastlinske vrste, ki pri nas ni dobro znana. V prispevku opozarjamo tudi na potencialne negativne vplive, ki bi jih kudzu lahko povzročil z nenadzorovanim širjenjem, predvsem v gozdnem prostoru. Na ravni EU je kudzu zaradi potencialnih škodljivih vplivov na okolje uvrščen med tiste invazivne tujerodne vrste, za katere morajo države članice sprejeti takojšnje stroge ukrepe za odstranitev oziroma preprečitev širjenja. Zgodnje obveščanje in hitro odzivanje v začetnih fazah širjenja sta ključni dejavnosti, ki bistveno pripomoreta k učinkovitemu zmanjševanju negativnih vplivov invazivnih tujerodnih vrst.

Public preferences for the management of different invasive alien forest taxa
Anže Japelj, Jana Kus Veenvliet, Judita Malovrh, Andrej Verlič, Maarten De Groot, 2019

Abstract: Invasive alien species (IAS) require management to mitigate their impact on ecosystems. The success of management decisions often depends on whether they are socially acceptable and to what extent people are willing to be actively involved in an early warning and rapid response system (EWRR). We administered a nation-wide public poll to assess people%s knowledge on plant, insect and fungal IAS; their perception of IAS as an environmental problem; and their support for different IAS management measures. Most respondents (76%) knew the term IAS, and more than half (62%) provided a correct definition. Species with more media attention and those that are easily visible are more frequently identified correctly. Almost all respondents (97%) support an EWRR system; however, there is heterogeneity in terms of the types of actions people approve of. Non-lethal measures garner more support than lethal ones. Gender and previous knowledge also affect the level of agreement. The willingness-to-pay question largely confirmed this, as people were divided into four classes according to their preferences for either biological, mechanical or chemical measures to control IAS; completeness and location of removal; and having an EWRR established. Mechanical removal is the most preferred treatment in two of the four classes, and complete removal is preferred over partial removal in one of the four classes. Having an EWRR is consistently supported in all classes, and removal in urban areas is preferred over removal in forestland in only one class.

Using citizen science to monitor the spread of tree pests and diseases : outcomes of two projects in Slovenia and the UK
Peter Crow, Ana Pérez-Sierra, Andreja Kavčič, Kate Lewthwaite, Marija Kolšek, Nikica Ogris, Barbara Piškur, Jana Kus Veenvliet, Simon Zidar, Suzanne Sancisi-Frey, Maarten De Groot, 2020

Abstract: The trees and forests of Europe are increasingly under threat from new pests and diseases that have originated in other parts of the world. Early detection of alien species when they first appear in European countries allows rapid response and offers the best chance to mitigate against their establishment and spread. Citizen science initiatives such as LIFE ARTEMIS in Slovenia, and Observatree in the UK, provide members of the public with the necessary training and educational resource to identify these tree pests and diseases and report them to the appropriate authorities, thereby increasing the level of surveillance and the capacity of the early warning system. This paper summarises some of the outcomes of these two projects and how they have both become integral parts of the official forest and tree health monitoring systems within their respective countries of Slovenia and the United Kingdom.

Challenges and solutions in early detection, rapid response and communication about potential invasive alien species in forests

Abstract: Invasive alien species (IAS) are an important threat to forests. One of the best ways to manage potential IAS is through early detection and rapid response (EDRR) strategies. However, when dealing with IAS in forests, EU regulations are divided between phytosanitary regulations and IAS regulations. A version of EDRR for the former has been in place in the EU for more than 15 years while the latter is still in the process of being implemented. During 2019, a workshop was held to gather international experts on different plant health pests and IAS. The purpose of this workshop was to identify the opportunities and difficulties in applying the EDRR system in the EU phytosanitary and IAS legislation to four species for providing suggestions to improve the EDRR system. The model species are well known and come from different trophic levels. These species were the American pokeweed (Phytolacca americana), the grey squirrel (Sciurus carolinensis); and the plant health pests Geosmithia morbida and Emerald ash borer (Agrilus planipennis). We identified the similarities in the challenges of early detection, rapid response and communication of these species. For all species, difficulties in species identification, knowledge gaps on the pathways of spread, a lack of resources and uncertainty over which national government service was the competent authority were identified as the main challenges. Other challenges like public perception for the grey squirrel or methodological problems were species-specific. Regarding the rapid response: public perception, determination of the eradication area, sufficient scientific capacity and the lack of resources were common challenges for all species. Therefore, collaboration between institutes dealing with plant health pests and IAS can lead to better control of both groups of unwanted %organisms in forests.
