Aquatic Invasive Species Working Group

HomeWorking Group → Aquatic Invasive Species Working Group



SIL Working Group on Aquatic Invasive Species (SIL WG AIS) was established in August 1998 at the 27th SIL Congress in Dublin, Ireland.

The long-term goal of the Working Group is to promote global awareness of the problems and risks posed by cross-boundary species transfers by encouraging and improving scientific networking and data exchanges.

Key activities of the Working Group include: 1. to develop an international network of interested scientists and decision-makers concerned about AIS; 2. to support development of open information sources on AIS, including open-access thematic journals; 3. to support/organize thematic international meetings.
