Provides lists and information for species declared invasive, noxious, prohibited, or otherwise harmful or potentially harmful. Information is organized by geographical location, covering the United States (U.S.).

In the U.S., there are many Federal agencies and State agencies involved with regulating invasive species, and unfortunately there is no accepted standard for regulating all types of invasive species in all geographic areas.

We have included the following resources for information purposes only and should not be considered complete, or legally binding. Resources included may not have current information based on the current regulations. For further information pertaining to actual regulations, please refer directly to the regulating agencies. Each State has different statutes and administrative rules that may dictate its role in the management of invasive species.
