EPPO Training course on the EPPO prioritization process
for invasive alien plants

Belgrade, 2013-07-09/11

 

EPPO organized a training course on the EPPO prioritization process for invasive alien plants attended by 30 participants from Balkan countries (Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia).

This training course was organized along the same lines as the one held in Paris on 2013-03-12/14. General presentations on Pest Risk Analysis, definitions and concepts related to biological invasions, the EPPO Standard on the prioritization process on invasive alien plants and its application in EPPO countries as well as insights on uncertainties when performing such assessments were made for the participants. In addition to testing the process with case species and using the CAPRA software and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF) Niche Model, the participants presented the outcomes of assessments they performed during the training course on invasive alien plants of relevance for their country.

This training workshop was preceded by an international seminar on ‘Lists of invasive alien plant species in the Balkans’ organized by IZBIS, the Institute for Plant Protection and Environment. Presentations from this international seminar and pictures are available on the IZBIS website.
