Environmental Protection Agency Research: Prevention, Control and Eradication of Invasive Alien Species

Invasive alien species (IAS) are animals and plants that become introduced, either accidentally or intentionally to a region where they are not present and have serious negative impacts where they establish. This research by Ireland’s Environmental Protection Agency informs policy on the prevention, early detection and rapid eradication of IAS, and their management in accordance with the internationally agreed hierarchical approach to combatting IAS.
