Invasive alien species in aquatic environments

This document belongs to the Knowledge for action collection


 This book continues the Knowledge for action series that makes new research findings and science-advice work available to professionals in the water and aquatic-environment sector (scientists, engineers, managers, instructors, students, etc.).

Invasive alien species (IAS) are acknowledged as one of the main causes of biodiversity loss worldwide. The objective of these two volumes in the Knowledge for action series, based on the work of the IBMA work group in conjunction with almost 100 contributors, is to contribute to the debates on how to manage IASs, to provide a general outline on current knowledge (volume 1) and a number of specific examples (volume 2) to assist managers of aquatic environments and policy makers in their respective tasks to better manage these species.

The first volume presents the current situation concerning invasive alien species in aquatic environments in continental France.
