Prof Montserrat Vilà, research professor at Estación Biológica de Doñana (EBD-CSIC) in Seville (Spain) will give a presentation on the impacts of biological invasions with special emphasis on a global analysis of the ecological effects of alien plants on native species and ecosystems in the introduced range. The talk will also describe how impacts are quantified, as well some ways to conduct risk analysis of invasion in Europe. Biological invasions occur when species are introduced by humans beyond their natural dispersal ranges, establishing and spreading in the region. Some impacts can affect socioeconomic sectors such as forestry, agriculture or public health. From the management and policy perspective it is important to identify which invasive species are causing, or have the potential to cause, major impacts. A panel of experts, will lead an insightful discussion with Prof Vila on the impacts of biological invasions in the Australian context. For more information and to register:
