This workshop will be held at Peniche at the Escola Superior de Turismo e Tecnologia auditorium, in January 2018 from 29 to 31 and it will be focused on invasive alien species (IAS) on islands, their impact and management.
Island flora and fauna tend to be particularly vulnerable to IAS, and many insular endemics have been driven to extinction by these invaders. But awareness of the damaging impact of invasive species is growing and islands offer the possibility of long-term refuge and security if alien species can be eradicated or effectively controlled.
Over recent decades, the management and even eradication of island invasives have developed from small-scale experimentation to large scale operations. This workshop will be useful to discuss the discovery of new approaches and share experiences from the lessons of earlier operations, good and bad.
This conference will bring together experts and those who want to know more about the invaders and invaded habitats and how to control or eradicate them.
Registrations are closed and the programme is finished. We have several speakers from different countries and different communications about similar LIFE projects. Final programme of this event can be found here.
