dc.description.abstract This thesis is an investigation of the disjointed movement of government and non-government organizations that has led to institutional fragmentation in invasive species management (ISM). This study explored management avenues at a localized level to better understand both the successes and barriers in implementation. The goal of this research was to provide a comprehensive perspective on ISM practices and challenges. Expert interviews focused on the structural components comprising the process and substance aspects of ISM. The study found that involvement in ISM across Ontario varies greatly. A network approach was used to form an alternative framework that: 1) identifies capacity and mandates of each involved stakeholder and 2) identifies how action is executed at each level. As a result, this research provides a possible solution to institutional fragmentation through the creation of a more focused framework that outlines stakeholders, scope, responsibilities, and roles for the management of invasive species. en_US
