National management of invasive aquatic species

Invasive species have become a major concern in both ecological and economic terms. To react effectively today, management of invasive species is required on the national level. Onema and Cemagref have set up a work group to draft guidelines for the management of biological invasions of aquatic ecosystems and develop operational tools for managers and decision-makers. The group comprises different stakeholders in aquatic environments, including the Water agencies, the Ecology ministry, ONCFS, regional parks, INRA, CNRS, universities, etc. The first step is to draw up a list of existing needs, knowledge and tools for the management of biological invasions.
