Invasoras - Invasive Plants in Portugal

0 reviews

Many ecosystems in Portugal are deeply affected by invasive species, either animal or plants. This means considerable economical losses, huge impacts on biodiversity, changes in the ecosystems services and even public health issues. Our goal is to explain this problem, educating not only the common citizen but also specialized technicians to recognize and control invasive species.

Education, detection and action Our goal is to raise awareness about biological invasions, make known the different invasive plants in Portugal and stimulate public participation in mapping of species, the control of plant populations and education. We have created comprehensive profiles of the species considered invasive in Portugal, and we provide useful tools and information for managers, scientific community members and anyone interested in the topic. In addition, we offer support material for environmental education, for teachers and informal action groups.
