Abstract:
Data presented here are those used for the following publication: Bradley et al. 2011. Global change, global trade, and the next wave of plant invasions. Front Ecol Environ 10(1): 20-28. doi: 10.1890/110145 Data from the USDA's global agricultural trade system online database were used to identify emerging (those with an average import value of less than $100,000 from 2000-2010) and established (those with an average import value of more than $100,000 from 2000-2010) sources of nursery plant imports to the US.

Data sources

Emerging and established sources of nursery plant imports to the US were identified using the US Department of Agriculture�s (USDA�s) global agricultural trade system online database. Nursery product categories assessed included bulbs and roots, trees and shrubs, herbaceous perennials, unrooted vines, and mosses and lichens, but excluded any plant identified by name (eg azaleas). Import dollar value were compiled by country from 1989 (the first year of record) through 2010 (all dollar amounts hereafter are in US$). �Emerging� trade partners were identified as countries with an increasing trend during the period of record, but had an average import value of less than $100 000 per year from 2000�2010. �Established� trade partners had an average import value of greater than $100 000 per year from 2000�2010. This threshold divided the pool of nursery plant trade partners roughly in half. Invasive plants were then determined to have arrived from predominantly emerging or established trade partners by assessing the countries comprising the native ranges for 2608 invasive plants in the US as documented by the USDA.
