IUCN SSC Invasive Species Specialist Group

List Information

ALIENS-L is the mailing list of the Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG) (www.issg.org) of the IUCN Species Survival Commission. The group aims to "reduce the threats posed by invasive species to natural ecosystems and their native species, through increasing awareness of invasive species and means of controlling or eradicating them".

This list is a contribution to that mission. It allows users to freely seek and share information on invasive species and the threats which they pose to the biodiversity of our planet.

The ISSG is a world wide network of experts on the conservation impacts of invasive species. Membership is by invitation, but it is not necessary to be a full member of the group to contribute to the cause of reducing conservation threats posed by invasive species.

ISSG provides advice on threats from invasive species and control or eradication methods to IUCN members, conservation practitioners, and policy makers. The group concentrates on reducing or preventing the adverse effects of alien invasions on conservation values.
