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.

Highland Invasive Species Forum

The Forum had a good turn-out for its annual meeting. After an indoor session in Marybank hall, we ventured out into the rain. In the woods at Fairburn, we viewed the results of an ongoing project (run by Cromarty Firth Fishery Trust) to remove Rhododendron ponticum and got a wee taste of lever-and-mulch from Gordon French.
