    5. 5. Demand for knowledge – policy environment <ul><ul><li>2001 – National Invasive Species Management Plan Published, and: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Identified need to make decisions on policies and management of invasive species to reduce threats to: biodiversity ecosystems economic development human and animal well-being agricultural production, forestry and fisheries transport and trade water availability, quality and quantity </li></ul></ul>
    6. 6. The Invasive Species Compendium will be a multi-media encyclopaedia of: <ul><ul><li>Known invasive species, of all taxa affecting all natural and managed ecosystems, except human pathogens. It will be global in coverage, and will concentrate on those species that have the greatest impacts on economies, livelihoods, human health, the environment and biodiversity. </li></ul></ul>
    7. 7. Datasheet country records translated into centre-of-country points in KML format
    8. 8. Why does this species not occur in the south? Is temperature a factor? ISC + Koeppen climate data mash-up
    9. 9. Do differences in land use affect the range of an invasive species?
    10. 10. 1. IDENTITY SECTION Notes on Taxonomy and Nomenclature Summary of Invasiveness 2. DISTRIBUTION SECTION Distribution – Further information History of Introduction/Spread Risk of introduction 3. BIOLOGY AND ECOLOGY SECTION Description Similarities to Other Species/Conditions Notes on Habitat Notes On Crops/Other Plants Affected Biology and Ecology Genetics Reproductive biology Physiology and phenology Nutrition Associations Environmental requirements Movement and Dispersal – Summary Natural dispersal (non-biotic) Vector transmission (biotic) Accidental introduction Intentional introduction Notes on Natural Enemies 4. IMPACT SECTION Impacts Economic impact Social impact Environmental impact Impact on habitats Impact on biodiversity 5. MANAGEMENT SECTION Productive Uses and Management Economic value Social benefit Environmental services Invasive Species management Detection and inspection methods Diagnosis Prevention SPS measures Early warning systems Rapid response Public awareness Eradication Containment/zoning Control Cultural control and sanitary measures Physical/mechanical control Movement control Biological control Chemical control Host resistance (incl. vaccination) IPM Control by utilization Monitoring and surveillance (incl. remote sensing) Mitigation Ecosystem restoration 6.
