Invasive alien species in aquatic environments - Practical information and management insights - Vol. 3 | Knowledge for action | March 2019
NEW FILES 2020/2021 !
Invasive alien species (IAS) and their impacts represent a growing concern for the managers of natural areas.That is particularly true for aquatic environments where an array of stakeholders are now taking action. In parallel, public policies are coming into play on the national level and the European Union now has a regulation in this field. These volumes offer highly useful information while attempting to address the specific aspects of each situation, including the site, the species to be managed and the necessary technical and financial resources.
