I have been thinking on possible activities during my one-month visit to the UQ. These are initial interests to begin discussing on these issues but I am open to any ideas you may have for collaboration. The activities I am interested in include: -          To visit study areas (with the focus on: habitats, species, sampling design, field methods), especially to conservation and production forests -          To know the type of collaboration you, as researchers, have with land managers and policy makers -          To know the tools you use for conservation decision and planning -          To discuss on common top ...

Biological invasions are considered as one of the five most important direct drivers of biodiversity loss. Alien species may become invasive and displace native species, cause the loss of native genotypes, modify habitats, change community structure, affect food-web properties and ecosystem processes, impede the provision of ecosystem services, impact human health, and cause substanial economic losses. While incorporation of actions to mitigate invasive species have been proposed in terrestrial conservation planning, this not the case for the marine realm. Currently the Mediterranean Sea is the most impacted sea int he world hosting more than 900 alien species. The predominant pathway is the Canal of Suez which acts as a corridor for the movement of thermophilic species of Indo-Pacific ori ...
