Abstract

We formulate and solve a long-term multi-objective dynamic model for controlling invasive species using conflict resolution. This optimization framework is then applied to the case of buffelgrass control in the Arizona desert. Three players each value protection of three different threatened resources: riparian vegetation, buildings and saguaro cactus. The model optimally allocates labor and a monetary budget to protect these resources by controlling the buffelgrass population in a multi-period planning horizon, based on the theory of cooperative games.
