Abstract/Summary:
What I have been finding is that while ecological restoration and the science and management of invasive species share many of the same goals and concerns, there is a fundamental difference in how the two fields are conveyed to the public. This difference relates to the use of fear as a mechanism for gaining public support and motivating behavioral change.
