Biological Invasion as a Global Change

Aug 21st, 1994 - Sep 3rd, 1994

This workshop focused on biological invasion (invasive species). The thesis of this workshop was that human-caused biological invasions have become so widespread as to blur the regional distinctiveness of Earth’s biogeographic regions. Discussions included impacts on global biodiversity and related ecological and cultural impacts, pathways for species invasion, and potential policies to address biological invasion. A model law was developed that would potentially provide guidance on how to better manage biological invasion between countries.
