RAPID INNS Management Toolkit: "Alert" species

ID and Contingency Planning Training Toolkit

Alert species are organisms that are considered highly likely to invade the UK or are already present and likely to spread. They are species that have the potential to cause signification harm economically or to native species and ecosystems.  On this webpage, there are presentations on identification of species and on the contingency process as well as links to ID sheets for the species. These materials are freely available to download and use for training.
