Invasive species can be plants, animals or other non-native living organisms which can have substantial adverse impacts on a wide range of areas ranging from sustainability of agricultural production to conservation and protection of critical natural resources. Research activities focus on detection and identification of invasive species, estimating potential impacts and developing control measures to prevent environmental and economic losses from invasive species infestation.
