The CABI Invasives blog is an opportunity for scientists across our centres to highlight their research and debate topical issues in the field of invasive species. We hope the blog will reflect the diversity of research projects and consultancies CABI scientists are involved in and can be used to spark wider debate in the field of invasives, whist ultimately working towards the reduction in occurrence and impact of invasive species across the globe through awareness raising and dissemination of scientific information and experiences.
CABI and invasive species
CABI is a not-for-profit science-based development and information organization. We improve people’s lives by providing information and applying scientific expertise to solve problems in agriculture and the environment. CABI has been working on sustainable solutions for the management of invasive species for almost 100 years. World-wide we research and implement biological control programmes against invasive plants, animals and microorganisms which cause an adverse detrimental effect in their areas of introduction. We also study the impact of invasive species on the habitats they invade, advise on invasive species policy and produce books and tools for environmental managers, researchers and farmers.
