Global threats from invasive alien species in the twenty-first century and national response capacities

Posted on أربعاء, 24 أغسطس 2016, 11:26

Invasive alien species (IAS) threaten human livelihoods and biodiversity globally. Increasing globalization facilitates IAS arrival, and environmental changes, including climate change, facilitate IAS establishment. Here we provide the first global, spatial analysis of the terrestrial threat from IAS in light of twenty-first century globalization and environmental change, and evaluate national capacities to prevent and manage species invasions. We find that one-sixth of the global land surface is highly vulnerable to invasion, including substantial areas in developing economies and biodiversity hotspots. The dominant invasion vectors differ between high-income countries (imports, particularly of plants and pets) and low-income countries (air travel). Uniting ...

Why Africa needs adequate plant surveillance

Posted on أربعاء, 24 أغسطس 2016, 11:10

To tackle devastating crop diseases, Africa should boost regional plant surveillance. The emergence of Tuta absoluta on the African agricultural landscape has rekindled pertinent questions regarding Africa’s capability to protect local agriculture and enhance international trade. The importance of being battle-ready on a grand scale rather than leaving those who are struggling to make daily lives take up arms against a pest they barely know about, is therefore not difficult to see. Thus, strengthening our national or preferably regional approach to plant protection could be key.

Scientists gear up to battle invasive species

Posted on أربعاء, 24 أغسطس 2016, 08:34

A research programme to tackle invasive species that kill plants and sicken animals is getting under way at the United Kingdom’s Centre for Agriculture and Bioscience International (CABI). The programme, worth US$50 million, aims to find scientific solution that help farmers to either defeat or adapt to the presence of invasive species. The goal is to tackle the devastating economic impact of such species, estimated to be around $183 billion in lost crops and revenue in Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia and South-East Asia every year.

Assessing and Managing the Current and Future Pest Risk from Water Hyacinth, (Eichhornia crassipes), an Invasive Aquatic Plant Threatening the Environment and Water Security

Posted on ثلاثاء, 23 أغسطس 2016, 15:11

Understanding and managing the biological invasion threats posed by aquatic plants under current and future climates is a growing challenge for biosecurity and land management agencies worldwide. Eichhornia crassipes is one of the world’s worst aquatic weeds. Presently, it threatens aquatic ecosystems, and hinders the management and delivery of freshwater services in both developed and developing parts of the world.

Most nations lack ability to deal with invasive species

Posted on ثلاثاء, 23 أغسطس 2016, 15:07

Most countries in the world have little capacity to deal effectively with invasive species, a study suggests. The spread of non-native species threatens livelihoods and biodiversity, but the issue is worsened by global trade, travel and climate change. They show that one-sixth of the world's land surface is vulnerable to invasion. In what the authors say is the first evaluation of its kind, the paper assesses individual nations' abilities to manage existing invasive species and respond to new ones.

تهديد عائم: الحاويات البحرية تنشر الآفات والأمراض

Posted on ثلاثاء, 23 أغسطس 2016, 11:50

أصدرت منظمة الأغذية والزراعة مؤخرا مقالاً إخبارياً على صفحتها الرئيسية حول قضية الحاويات البحرية، التي يجري التعامل معها من قبل الاتفاقية الدولية لوقاية النباتات.

تصل الأنواع الغازية إلى موائل جديدة من خلال قنوات مختلفة، ولكن يعد الشحن البحري، القناة الرئيسية. ويعني الشحن اليوم الحاويات البحرية: على الصعيد العالمي، يتم سنوياً إجراء حوالى 527 مليون رحلة للحاويات البحرية - تتعامل الصين بمفردها مع أكثر من 133 مليون حاوية بحرية سنوياً. ولا يقتصر الأمر على حمولة الحاويات فقط، ولكن الأشياء الفولاذية نفسها، التي يمكن أن تكون بمثابة نواقل لانتشار الأنواع الغريبة القادرة على إتلاف الدمار البيئي والزراعي. لمعرفة المزيد، يرجى قراءة أخبار منظمة ...
