Invasive Alien Species
Invasive Alien Species (IAS) are organisms non-native to Europe (plants or animals) that are widely spread, including in urban environment. Timely reporting helps to prevent their further spread; thus, people’s contributions are really important. The European Alien Species Information Network (EASIN) is a scientific support system underpinning the implementation of EU policy on biodiversity. EASIN aggregates and harmonizes scientific and spatial data from different sources and databases worldwide, making them available to the Commission services, Member States (MS), stakeholders and the scientific community through web tools and services.
This course aims at involving the public in learning and monitoring IAS in Europe, promoting people engagement, IAS management, and supporting the implementation of the EU Regulation 1143/2014 on IAS, which is the EU regulation listing the alien species of concern and providing a set of measures to be taken across the EU.
