Abstract

There are pests that have the potential to invade the UK and cause
problems to a wide range of crops. These include invertebrates, fungi and plant
species. With climate change ongoing, the conditions within UK crops will become
favourable for the spread of pests currently within the UK, and establishment of
several invasive species, which will provide significant issues for their
management.
This paper will summarise the potential for several current and potential invasive
pest species to spread and establish under current and future climates, and discuss
the likely impacts they will have on specific UK crops.
