Optimal control will discussed as a tool to find intervention strategies in models for invasive species. Examples of optimal control of discrete time systems and of systems of ordinary differential equations will be given. Control characterizations and numerical results for models with different types of control intervention actions will be presented. Applications include nascent foci and native-invasive competition examples.
