Research

Research is important for all aspects of invasive non-native species management. By understanding what effect invasive non-native species are having on our biodiversity, community and economy we can better understand what management is required. Research also plays a crucial role in developing good practice guidance and prioritising work.

It is crucial that land managers and researchers work together to make sure that the results of research are considered when management is carried out.

A wide range of organisations are currently researching invasive non-native species both in a local and global context, therefore it is important to look at what is being completed so that we can build on previous work.

Our most recent research opportunities



Potential invasiveness of Foxglove Tree (Paulownia tomentosa) in Greater London

Summary:

The impact of the Foxglove Tree (Paulownia tomentosa) within the Greater London area is largely unknown and a good evidence base would provide direction to land managers needing to prioritise invasive species works. A range of factors need to be determined including the potential invasiveness and broad habitat requirements. This area of interest has a large range of scope especially within the London region.

Potential invasiveness of Highclere Holly (Ilex x altaclerensis) in Greater London

Summary:

The effects of Highclere Holly (Ilex x altaclerensis) within the Greater London area are largely unknown and a good evidence base would provide direction to land managers needing to prioritise invasive species works. A range of factors need to be determined including the potential invasiveness and broad habitat requirements. This area of interest has a large range of scope especially within the London region.
