November 2014

Issue Number: 3

Hi, Everyone,

Well, with the coming of winter we are seeing a noticeable change in the invasive non-native species seen out and about.

Also quite a few publications have come out in November, good for some rainy day reading!

If you no longer wish to receive the LISI News please do let us know.            

Cheers, Karen
