  • In fact, an analysis of the IUCN Red List shows that they are the second most common threat associated with species that have gone completely extinct, and are the most common threat associated with extinctions of amphibians, reptiles and mammals. (iucn.org)
  • The IUCN Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG), which maintains the list, acknowledges that it is "very difficult to identify 100 invasive species from around the world that really are 'worse' than any others. (wikipedia.org)
  • The Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG), a specialist group of the Species Survival Commission (SSC) of the World Conservation Union (IUCN), Auckland. (wikipedia.org)
  • threat
  • For the 69-70 known species, a recent threat to earthworm populations in the UK is the New Zealand flatworm (Arthurdendyus triangulatus), which feeds upon earthworms but has no local natural predator itself. (wikipedia.org)
  • Absence from the list does not imply that a species poses a lesser threat. (wikipedia.org)
  • There will be sites where the Department will want to eradicate salmonids species because they pose a significant threat to the maintenance of a threatened species or ecosystem. (wikipedia.org)
  • Florida
  • Perhaps the best known example of an Australian plant becoming an invasive species is the problematic introduction of Melaleuca quinquenervia into Florida. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cupaniopsis anacardioides, the tuckeroo, has become an invasive weed along the coastline of Florida. (wikipedia.org)
  • diseases
  • An invasive species may be disruptive to a new ecosystem by preying upon the native organisms, rapidly depleting natural resources and causing diseases that the ecosystem has no defense against. (reference.com)
  • Invasive species often carry new diseases for native species. (wikipedia.org)
  • For example, the biting fly in Hawaii are small, even tiny, and include many species, some of which are vectors of diseases while others bite and cause considerable nuisance and health-related problems. (wikipedia.org)
  • In the proper conditions, nonindigenous species can out-compete indigenous species by dominating resources or spreading diseases or parasites. (wikipedia.org)
  • vertebrate
  • Project staff will collaborate with other state and federal agencies and private organizations to develop techniques to control rodents and other vertebrate species in natural areas. (usda.gov)
  • Carp
  • Don't confuse young Asian carp with common Michigan species! (michigan.gov)
  • Notable examples of invasive species include European rabbits , grey squirrels , domestic cats , carp and ferrets . (rug.nl)
  • A new report commissioned by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has concluded that an Asian carp barrier using sound, bubbles and lights would be the most viable option to deter invasive fish from moving past Lock and Dam #1 in Minneapolis. (twincities.com)
  • waters
  • Illegal stockings of invasive fishes are a continuing problem in Maine waters. (maine.gov)
  • The Volunteer Invasive Investigator Program is designed specifically to help educate people on ways to keep our waters clean and prevent the spread of aquatic hitchhikers into the lakes and rivers of Connecticut. (ct.gov)
  • The National Invasive Species Act (NISA) is a United States federal law intended to prevent invasive species from entering inland waters through ballast water carried by ships. (wikipedia.org)
  • Invasive fishes enter the fresh waters of Canada in several ways including drifting, deliberate introduction, accidental release, experimental purposes and, most commonly, through the attachment on international boat hulls. (wikipedia.org)
  • Another example of the migration of non-native species is Dreissena Polymorpha, common name Zebra Mussel, originating in Asian waters. (wikipedia.org)
  • Agriculture
  • In 1997, a letter o-written by Don C. Schmitz, Dr. James T. Carlton, Dr. Daniel Simberloff, and Dr. Phyllis N. Windle, and signed by more than 500 scientists, resource and agriculture officials, urged the U.S. government to form a commission to recommend new strategies to prevent and manage invasive species. (wikipedia.org)
  • predators
  • As with many non-native and invasive species, snakehead fish have no natural predators in the United States. (michigan.gov)
  • Wild boar from Europe Invasive wild pigs' success can largely be attributed to their lack of natural predators, impressive fertility, adaptability to a variety of climates and conditions, and tendency to eat almost anything. (wikipedia.org)
  • predation
  • If these species evolved under great competition or predation, then the new environment may host fewer able competitors, allowing the invader to proliferate quickly. (wikipedia.org)
  • Concern
  • This edition of News to Us highlights both good and bad news on local algal blooms as well as two stories on non-native species making headlines - one of concern, the other of little concern. (hrwc.org)
  • Lake Erie
  • Headlines have been circulating on the invasion of this non-native species recently because of new sightings in Lake Erie and St. Clair. (hrwc.org)
  • humans

  • Cats are associated with humans as a communal species, and impact an area of 5 km around each center of human population. (wikipedia.org)
  • birds
