Target species:
Location:
The location within the country (left blank if the infestation is widespread)
State:
The state, province or territory in the USA, Canada or Australia (blank if the infestation is widespread or another country)
Country:
The country name, as defined in ISO 3116
Latitude:           °N
The latitude of the epicentre of infestation, as decimal degrees north of the equator (southern hemisphere locations should have a negative value)
Longitude:           °E
The longitude of the epicentre of infestation, as decimal degrees north of the equator (western locations should have a negative value)
Climate: choose as many as applicable   · equatorial (Köppen A)   · arid (Köppen B)   · warm temperate (Köppen C)   · snow (Köppen D)   · polar (Köppen E)
The Koppen climate group(s) of the infested zone
Detection date:
The date on which the incursion was detected
Reporting date:
The date on which the detection was reported to the appropriate authorities
Detected by: choose one only   · biosecurity service provider   · scientific community   · industry   · general public
A classification of the person who made the detection, as in Froud et al. (2008) pp. 97-110 in Surveillance for Biosecurity: Pre-Border to Pest Management ISBN 978-0-473-14188-2
Detection method: choose one only   · specific diagnostic test   · targeted traps or lures   · untargeted (generalist) traps or lures   · remote sensing   · host or risk site searches   · industry/scientific vigilance   · passive surveillance (public vigilance)
The specific surveillance method by which the incursion was first detected
Detection details:


Any further information relevant to detection of this incursion
Investigating agency:
The name of the official agency charged with conducting this investigation
Introduction pathway:


The probable mode of introduction and any evidence for this
Delimitation actions:


Details of how the geographical extent of the infestation was measured
Establishment status: choose one only   · still associated with introduction pathway (e.g. imported host)   · propagules found (e.g. trapped) but no local population seen   · local population established beyond introduction pathway   · widespread and present for many generations   · unclear, as introduction pathway unknown
How well established the invading population was when discovered
Infestation size:           ha
The area occupied by the infestation, in hectares. Enter 0 if no ground population was found
Environments infested: choose as many as applicable   · industrial/commercial   · residential   · amenity (e.g. parks)   · agricultural   · protected (e.g. greenhouse)   · production forestry   · natural ecosystems
The types of environments occupied by the infestation
Hazard assessment: choose one only   · significant impacts reported from elsewhere   · potential impacts unknown, but biologically feasible   · direct impacts negligible, but has trade implications   · negligible direct impacts expected, but easily eradicable
The criterion on which the hazard posed by this taxon was judged
Deciding agency:
The name of the official agency that made the decision on how to respond to this incursion
Management decision: choose one only   · attempt eradication   · attempt containment   · pest management   · no further action
The management decision resulting from the incursion investigation
Reasons for eradication not being attempted: choose as many as applicable   · apparently not established   · already too widespread or abundant   · too cryptic, or lacking effective detection tools   · lacking effective control tools   · open pathway for re-introduction   · spread is too rapid, or inability to contain   · not cost-effective (low benefit:cost ratio)   · affected agencies unable to reach a consensus   · other (noted below)
The reasons why eradication was not attempted, if that was the case
Investigation notes:


Any other relevant information on the incursion investigation
Programme start date:
The operational start date of the eradication response
Programme end date:
The operational end date of the eradication response
Eradication date:
The date at which eradication was officially declared (if successful)
Operational agency:
The name of the official agency charged with conducting the eradication
Quarantine area:           ha
The area (in hectares) of the quarantine zone imposed around the infestation, or 0 if no movement control was imposed
Maximum area treated:           ha
The maximum extent (in hectares) of eradication treatments, excluding quarantine and surveillance
Monitoring details:


Details of how progress towards eradication was monitored
Cost:           million
The currency amount spent on the eradication programme
Cost currency:
The specific currency (ISO 4217) of the amount entered above
Cost year:
The year in which the above cost was calculated (so that the costs of eradication programmes can be compared over historical time)
Cost sharing:


Details of how costs were shared between government and industry
Outcome: choose one only   · unknown   · in progress   · confirmed eradication   · likely eradication   · declared eradicated but likely failure   · failure to eradicate
The outcome at the end of the eradication programme
Evidence for outcome:


Evidence for the outcome stated above
Reasons for failure: choose as many as applicable   · allocated budget ran out   · decline in political or social will   · disruption by climate or disturbance event(s)   · unable to detect or delimit infestations adequately   · unable to access or treat all infestations   · treatments failed to achieve adequate control   · local infestations spread more rapidly than anticipated   · re-infestation from elsewhere   · available biological information was insufficient or inadequate   · program management systems were flawed   · other
Probable reasons for the eradication failing (if it did)
