New paper: risk management to prioritise the eradication of new and emerging invasive non-native species
The team at the Non-native Species Secretariat has led the development of a novel risk management tool to prioritise the eradication of new and emerging invasive species in Britain. Experts from across Britain helped to trial the scheme on 41 species, identifying priorities for eradication of established species with limited distributions and contingency planning for species likely to invade in the future. The Non-native Risk Management scheme (NNRM) is one of the first risk management schemes for invasive species in Europe and provides essential evidence to support prioritisation in GB.
