Invasive Species

Invasive non-native species (INNS) are considered a serious threat to biodiversity worldwide. Second only to habitat loss and destruction.

These species pose a growing problem for the conservation of biodiversity. They are a threat to economic interests such as agriculture, forestry and fisheries. They are the greatest threat to fragile ecosystems such as islands.

We're developing our understanding of the origins, spread, impacts, and control of INNS. This requires a wide understanding of their ecology and social context. 

By working with Government Agencies and NGOs (both national and international), we're developing a better understanding of the dynamics of INNS. We provide science to support evidence-based policy and management.
