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.

The Economic Cost of Invasive-Non Native Species on GB

This is a report carried out by CABI (the same group who have been testing biological control agents for some invasive plants) on behalf of the UK government.

Not sure if this has been posted before but it certainly has some interesting figures which are worth quoting if you are ever having to justify INNS control work.
