New Science: Managing Invasive Species in Oceania (Sep 18, 2015)
Society for Conservation Biology Oceania.
Invasive species are a global threat to biodiversity, but here in Oceania they are particularly problematic; invasive vertebrates and plants have caused 75% of all terrestrial vertebrate extinctions on oceanic islands. There is often a limited understanding of the biology of emerging invasive species, but delay in action may result in escalating costs of control, reduced economic returns from management actions and decreased feasibility of management. Therefore, spread models that inform and facilitate on-ground control of invasions are needed.

Thinking Globally, Acting Locally – Conservation Lessons from Oceania (2016; PDF | 113 KB)
Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (Australia).

Oceania is a diverse region encompassing Australia, Melanesia, Micronesia, New Zealand and Polynesia, with six of the world’s 39 hotspots of diversity but a poor record for extinctions from widespread threats to biodiversity. This makes the region a priority for immediate and sustained conservation action. In this special issue we provide local conservation solutions in Oceania to global problems, capturing the diversity of nations, cultures and environments. The issue is organised by the major threats faced in the region: habitat loss, over exploitation and invasive species.
