Project: Forecasting Future Invasions and their Impacts.

It is now widely accepted that prevention and early responses are the best strategies to mitigate the impacts of invasive alien species. Consequently, research efforts must focus on prediction, both of the likely distribution of invasions and of their impact in newly invaded areas. Accounting for global environmental changes is obviously crucial for these predictions. It is also important to combine a better understanding of robust, general outcomes from global studies with a finer, more detailed understanding of mechanisms from specific communities. FFII aims at better forecasting the future of invasions and their impacts worldwide. To reach this goal, particular attention will be paid to patterns, processes and the impacts of biological invasions.
