Horizon Scanning Tool

The tool uses CABI data to generate a list of species that are absent from your selected ‘area at risk’ but present in ‘source countries’ i.e. countries with similar climates to your ‘area at risk’, neighbouring or selected trading countries, or countries where there are major transport links.
