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.
