Welcome to the Scottish Invasives blog. Invasive non-native species (or INNS) are plants and animals that have been introduced to areas outside their natural range. INNS are currently recognised as one of the greatest threats to biodiversity. The Scottish Invasives blog is intended as an informal forum for those interested in invasive species control. If you wish to contribute, please get in contact. You can click on any of the images to see them at higher resolution.

Natural corridors, such as watercourses, and man-made networks, such as roads and railways often facilitate the dispersal of invasive plants. A few Himalayan balsam have established on this railway embankment in Inverness.
Left untreated, there are likely to be many more plants next year.
