John R. Wilson has published over 80 papers in peer-reviewed journals on a wide range of ecological and evolutionary topics, with a particular focus on invasion science. Based in South Africa, he is a member of the IUCN Invasive Species Specialist Group, and works across science, management, and policy. F. Dane Panetta has over 40 years of weeds-related research experience in the areas of ecology, risk assessment and incursion management. He has published more than 90 papers in peer-reviewed journals and has edited or co-edited three books, including one on weed risk assessment. Cory Lindgren has expertise in policy and planning, spatial predictive modelling and early detection and rapid response, and has been working with invasive plants for over 25 years in Canada, heading up a number of groups and forums.
