Abstract/Summary

The Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, The Convention on Biological Diversity and the 10th Conference of the Parties in Nagoya during 2010 have all identified invasive alien species (IAS) as one of five major pressures driving biodiversity loss, and ultimately extinction of species. The requirement for improved detection and monitoring capabilities coupled with an effective decision-making framework is required to underpin control, mitigation and eradication of invasive non-native species. Here I describe the GB Non-Native Species Information Portal within the context of EU Biodiversity Strategy.
