ALIENTRADE: Something in the way they move: how global patterns of wildlife trade influence global invasion success

ALIENTRADE: Something in the way they move: how global patterns of wildlife trade influence global invasion success

Predicting impacts of alien species is crucial for managing the threats they pose to biodiversity and society in general. Species-specific traits and invaded-range characteristics influence invasion success. Accidental or intentional release of pets obtained through the global wild-pet trade (GWT) increases the likelihood of invasive establishment. ALIENTRADE will assess the role and impact that GWT plays as a global driver of biological invasions. Drawing on solid experience, ALIENTRADE's research team will work using a multidisciplinary framework to investigate the complex socioeconomic and environmental context, and develop risk assessments analysis addressing the sustainability of GWT. Focusing mainly on European biodiversity policies, practical science-based guidance will be produced, ensuring synergies across sectors, especially in determining international trade policies, and identifying potential introduction pathways.
