SIMBIOSYS: Invasive Species Workshop

An Invasive Species & Roads workshop on May 23rd 2013 in Trinity College Dublin. Halting the loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services remains a key challenge of the 21st century. Invasive species are now recognised as one of the greatest threats to biodiversity globally and in Ireland. The SIMBIOSYS Project contributed to tackling this challenge by studying the impacts of road developments on alien species invasion and resistance.

To register please fill out the registration form and email it to David Bourke at bourkedo@tcd.ie

This workshop aims to:

  • Provide an overview of invasive plants and their ecology.
  • Provide an overview of national and international legislation, policy and guidelines concerning the management of invasive alien plants on roads.
  • Disseminate the outputs from recent research activities on the impact of roads on biodiversity and ecosystem services
  • Demonstrate with practical examples perspectives on invasive plant management through biological, physical and chemical control.

A full workshop programme will be circulated soon. Please check out the website in the coming weeks for more information.
