Lindsay Norgrove and Greg Masters. Invasive alien species and climate change, with land use change and changes in the nitrogen and carbon cycles, are identified as the top four drivers of global biodiversity loss. This working paper looks at the issue in detail.

Richard Shaw, Arne Witt, Matthew Cock, Kate Pollard, Sarah Thomas and Dannie Romney. This case study looks at three examples of biological control in practice, from programmes where CABI has played a role, and provides results from a further five studies.

Written by Gordon Boy and CABI's Arne Witt, this book provides an account of how a multi-country 'war on weeds' project has contributed to improved management of Invasive Alien Species in Africa. The book provides an account of how the major barriers to invasive plant management were largely overcome in Ethiopia, Ghana, Uganda and Zambia during a five–year UNEP-GEF funded project.

Rene Eschen, Alain Roques and Alberto Santini. The number and impact of alien tree pests and pathogens increase in many countries as a result of international trade, despite phytosanitary measures aimed at preventing their introduction. This paper compares patterns in interceptions and establishments of alien arthropod pests and pathogens of woody plants in Europe.

CABI

CABI is an international not-for-profit organisation that works to improve people’s lives worldwide by solving problems in agriculture and the environment. CABI’s work is delivered through dedicated teams and key partners in 49 countries across the globe.

Plantwise

Plantwise is a global programme led by CABI which aims to increase food security and improve rural livelihoods by reducing crop losses. Through a network of plant clinics, Plantwise helps smallholder farmers lose less of what they grow to pests and diseases.
