IDB: the message from UN

In his IDB message of May 22, the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mr. Ban Ki-moon said: “… The most cost-effective and feasible method of control is prevention. To be successful, this strategy requires collaboration among Governments, economic sectors and non-governmental and international organizations. A country can only prevent invasions if it knows which species may invade, where they may come from and the best management options for dealing with them…” Download IDB booklet (Eng)

BioModel comments:  modern biodiversity modelling i.e. species distribution models (SDM’s) have to help with prediction of potential invasions and to prevent related (expected) threats – in forestry, agriculture, nature conservation, protected areas management etc.
