Assessment and prioritisation of risk for forty exotic animal species

This report documents work contributing to a project commissioned by the Invasive Animals Cooperative Research Centre to validate and refine risk assessment models used in decisions to import and manage introduced vertebrate species.

The intent of the project was to:

  • increase predictive accuracy, scientific validation and adoption of risk assessment models for the import and keeping of exotic vertebrates.
  • reduce the risk of new vertebrate pests establishing introduced populations in Australia.
