Invasive Species

Biological Invasions
Biological Invasions has a fully web−enabled manuscript submission and review system. This system offers authors the option of tracking in real time the review process of their manuscripts.

Center for Invasive Plant Management (CIPM)
The CIPM supports natural resource managers, scientists, and educators pursuing ecological approaches to invasive plant management by assisting natural resource managers, scientists, and educators in planning, developing, coordinating, facilitating, implementing and evaluating multi-organizational projects, programs, and publications.

Institute for Biological Invasions (IBI)
The IBI at the University of Tennessee maintains an informative website on both flora and fauna invasions with a comprehensive set of links to web resources, government programs and databases.

Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG)
The ISSG is part of the Species Survival Commission (SSC) of The World Conservation Union (IUCN) and provides advice on threats from invasives and control or eradication methods to IUCN members, conservation practitioners, and policy-makers. The group’s activities focus primarily on invasive species that cause biodiversity loss, with particular attention to those that threaten oceanic islands. The Global Invasive Species Database (GISD) aims to increase awareness about invasive alien species and to facilitate effective prevention and management activities.

Nipa Palm in Nigeria: A History of an Invasion
The invasive palm is threatening Nigeria’s extensive mangrove vegetation causing reduction in fish catch, poor navigation, ecological degradation and loss of biodiversity.

The Nature Conservancy
The Global Invasive Species Initiative is The Nature Conservancy’s response to abating the damage caused to native biodiversity by the human-facilitated introduction of non-native, harmful invasive species. This web site provides many resources designed to help all conservationists deal most effectively with invasive species.

The Wilderness Society
Invasive species are a major threat to Australian ecosystems on land and sea. Invasive plants and animals directly threaten individual species through competition, predation and disease.  Some invasive species alter ecosystem processes and ecological connections as identified as part of The Wilderness Society’s WildCountry work, leading to degradation of whole ecosystems.

University of California, Davis
The Biological Invasions IGERT (From Genes to Ecosystems, From Science to Society) is an interdisciplinary, collaborative program to train the next generation of graduate and professional students to be conversant in the ethical, political, legal, economic, and scientific issues pertinent to the analysis and remediation of biological invasions.

Weed Science Society of America
The Weed Science Society of America promotes research, education, and extension outreach activities related to weeds; provides science-based information to the public and policy makers; and fosters awareness of weeds and their impacts on managed and natural ecosystems.
