Management tools

This page presents links to practical tools to deal with IAS (prevention, control, eradication).  Currently only few links are included, but further work will be carried out on the page as resources become available.

CABI Invasive Species Compendium (ISC)  The ISC datasheets comprise fully referenced sections on taxonomy and nomenclature, distribution, habitat, identification, biology and ecology, species associations, pathways for introduction, impacts and management, complemented by images and maps, and supported by abstracts and full text articles. 

Global Invasive Species Database (GISD)  The GISD focuses on invasive alien species that threaten native biodiversity and covers all taxonomic groups from micro-organisms to animals and plants in all ecosystems. It features distribution information at country level and also at site level including protected areas and ecosystem, admin unit level, island etc. The database entries are rich in management information.

Regional Euro-Asian Biological Invasions Centre (REABIC) Several management tools are listed.  

USDA National Invasive Species Information Center has a Manager's Tool Kit, including a 'Manager's Tool Kit Custom Search Engine' to search for invasive species information included in this section of NISIC's site.
