Nobanis definitions

NOBANIS - definitions

  • NOBANIS adheres to definitions from COP 6 (decision VI/23)

    Alien species - a species, subspecies or lower taxon (such as a variety, race, provenance or stock), introduced outside its natural past or present distribution; includes any part, gametes, seeds, eggs, or propagules of such species that might survive and subsequently reproduce;

    Invasive alien species - an alien species whose introduction and/or spread threaten biological diversity;

    Introduction - the movement by human agency, indirect or direct, of an alien species outside of its natural range (past or present). This movement can be either within a country or between countries or areas beyond national jurisdiction;


Nobanis added value

NOBANIS – added value

  • The database is continually updated

  • NOBANIS has 19 member countries and thus represent a large part of the EU member states

  • We have held EW workshop, conducted pilot projects for EW systems, and are at the moment testing the use of biogeographical zones

  • We have a large network of contacts in both ministries and research
