Where can I find information from USGS research on the risks of giant, non-native invasive snake species?

USGS research participation was requested by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and National Park Service because those agencies were faced with a number of complex questions about how they should respond to the presence of giant constrictors in the U.S. and the prospect of additional giant constrictor species in the wild. These agencies particularly wanted USGS to address risks to wildlife, ecosystems, and human safety. This report followed USGS's best scientific practices, including stringent peer-review. For more scientific and statistical details, please see Chapter 2 of the Risk Assessment report.
