Invasive alien species (IAS) are species whose introduction and/or spread outside their natural past or present distribution threatens biological diversity. IAS occur in all taxonomic groups, including animals, plants, fungi and microorganisms, and can affect all types of ecosystems.
purposely introducing them to help control a native species that is considered a pest; for example, to control pests that destroy crops. importing ornamental plants to buy or sell. importing animals as pets.
Humans are most often directly responsible for introducing a species to a new region, whether intentionally or unintentionally. Species can become unintentionally transported globally, by catching a ride in places like ship ballast water, or locally, by attaching to boats or other equipment used by anglers and hunters.
Invasive species can change the functions of ecosystems. For example, invasive plants can alter the fire regimen, nutrient cycling, and hydrology in native ecosystems. Invasive species that are closely related to rare native species have the potential to hybridize with the native species.
The most economical and safest way to manage invasive species is by prevention. Early detection and rapid response of invasive species is much more effective than trying to control a widespread infestation. If eradication is not possible, the invasive species may be subject to control and management efforts.
The least labour-intensive option, chemical control on its own is usually the most effective option, as it can target specific species and will kill them guaranteed.
Physical or Mechanical Control – This type of control involves physically removing the invasive species (i.e. harvesting) or using barriers or traps to prevent their spread or to capture them. For invasive plants, mowing is another example of physical control.
Some examples of the diversity of invasive species include the emerald ash borer, feral swine, zebra and quagga mussels, kudzu vine, cheatgrass, hemlock woolly adelgid, white-nose syndrome fungal pathogen, lionfish, bufflegrass, Asian carp, garlic mustard, leafy spurge, Sirex woodwasp, Burmese python, Japanese knotweed …
Invasive species can negatively impact human health by infecting humans with new diseases, serving as vectors for existing diseases, or causing wounds through bites, stings, allergens, or other toxins (Mazza et al. 2013).
Establishing and strengthening federal policy restricting the importation of potentially damaging plant and animal species. Advocating for new legislation to require treatment of ballast water in ocean-going vessels, a primary introduction pathway for damaging aquatic invasive species.
Mute swans continue to be introduced or spread to new states by escaping captivity or dispersing naturally from established populations. Mute swans are on California’s restricted species list and cannot be imported, transported, or possessed without a permit.
The mute swan is considered an invasive species for two reasons. … In fact, it is a non-native species to the entire Western Hemisphere. Mute swans are native to Europe and eastern Asia and were brought over to North America as pets and ornamental birds in the late 1800s to early 1900s.
The National Park Service defines a invasive species as non-native species that causes harm to the environment, economy, or human, animal, or plant health (Executive Order 13751). Learn more about invasive species by visiting our About page.
Invasive: a species of plant or animal that outcompetes other species causing damage to an ecosystem. Non-native: a species that originated somewhere other than its current location and has been introduced to the area where it now lives (also called exotic species).
As per Executive Order 13112 (Section 1. Definitions) an “invasive species” is a species that is: 1) non-native (or alien) to the ecosystem under consideration and. 2) whose introduction causes or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health.
Population genetics analysis  demonstrated that the black rat was certainly directly propagated via human-mediated long-distance dispersal from Tambacounda and this particular type of diffusion, ie hierarchical diffusion, fits well with the absence of settlement continuity along the road, intersected by the NKNP, …
Fast growth, rapid reproduction, high adaptability, phenotype plasticity and tolerance of a wide range of environmental conditions are the characteristics of a species would make it more likely to become invasive.
Invasive Species have many different characteristics that allow them to be successful some of these characteristics are their populations ability to grow quickly, having a very general diet, ability to spread out to many different areas, and ability to with stand many environmental conditions.
Some species have been introduced, intentionally or not, in habitats and lands where they do not belong, sometimes with disastrous consequences.
Invasive species education is important because what affects the ecosystems that we live in affects our daily lives as well. Non-native plants and animals can disrupt the food industry, agriculture, and natural resources such as waterways.
The economic and social impacts of invasive species include both direct effects of a species on property values, agricultural productivity, public utility operations, native fisheries, tourism, and outdoor recreation, as well as costs associated with invasive species control efforts.
