Please Note Before Submitting a Request

  • The large numbers of invasive species prevent us from maintaining detailed information on ALL invasive species. In addition, determining the invasiveness of a species depends on a number of local factors, including the type of habitat. Refer to our Species Profiles List to access all species profiles included on our site
  • NISIC does not set laws or legislation, nor can we address legal issues.
  • NISIC cannot identify species nor do we handle reports of suspected invasive species. For assistance please see our Identification and Reporting resources.
  • NISIC cannot answer specific homework questions for you, but we can assist and get you started with your research.
  • NISIC is a one-person information center with limited resources and we are not able to participate in interviews for school projects.
