International Initiatives Against Invasive Alien Species

  • Mick N. Clout (a1) and Maj De Poorter (a1)
Abstract

Invasive alien species (IAS) are a major threat to biological diversity on a global scale, necessitating international cooperation to address the problem. This paper gives the context in which action against IAS needs to take place, explains the need for international cooperation, and provides examples of key international instruments, strategies, and programs to deal with IAS.
