Invasive Species - Current Hot Topics from the USFWS
This site has information about the invasive species issues most critical today to the USFWS. The site includes sections on prevention, control and research into invasive species.
Invasive Species Impacts to National Wildlife Refuges
Invasive non-native plants and animals in the United States now number at least 6,300, with new invasions occurring on a weekly basis. A growing global economy, new transportation routes, and quicker transit times have all led to a proliferation of invasive species. As these invasive species spread, there remains little question that they represent one of the most insidious and challenging resource problems facing Federal, State, and Tribal governments, and the private sector.
Invasive Species Program - U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Activities to prevent and control invasive plant and animal species that severely impact the lands and waters of the United States, including resources managed within the National Wildlife Refuge System, have become a priority for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as we expand our efforts to conserve and protect our nation's native fish and wildlife habitats.
Restoration of Native Habitats - USFWS
For aquatic and terrestrial habitats, restoration of native plant and animal communities is an important part of the invasive species control solution. In many cases, native species have been extirpated from areas invested by invasive species and in order to return the balance of the ecosystem, restoration projects are conducted following removal of the exotic invasive species.
Threats from Invasive Species - USFWS
Invasive species encroachment is one of the biggest threats to native ecosystmes that resource managers face today. This site discusses the threats those species bring.
