    Invasive Species Management A Handbook of Principles and Techniques Edited by Mick N. Clout and Peter A. Williams Techniques in Ecology & Conservation. Edited by world-renowned leaders in the field; A practical book describing the integration of proven techniques and policies to prevent, eradicate or control invasive alien species.   Interior works with a variety of partners on invasive rodent prevention, management and eradication. The main goal is to prevent rodents from reaching new islands. Where already found, invasive rodents are trapped and killed to limit their impact on native species and infrastructure. Helicopter drops of rodenticide are used to completely.

    The support of all stakeholders must be engaged during the entire programme, ideally using a social marketing campaign. Legal and institutional frameworks will define the basic opportunities for prevention and management of invasive alien species. There are four major options (or better, steps) for dealing with alien species. species, when transported to a new region without the attendant enemies, grow more vigorously and produce many more seeds than in their native ranges, and become aggressive invaders. Biocontrol aims to reduce the effects of this phenomenon, and to achieve a situation where the formerly invasive alien plant becomes a non-invasive naturalised alien.

      Invasive species take a massive toll on the economy. In the United States, the cost of damages and prevention, control and management efforts top $ billion per year, according to the recent report Building Resilience to the Economic Threat of Invasive Species by Swiss Re and Johns Hopkins University. Preventing the invasion of alien species Share this: Amsterdam, 8 June - Pollution, over-fishing, and invasive alien species all have a negative impact on our oceans, but now there is further information available on the effects of the invasion of alien species.
