Project number:

Neobiota Surveillance, Monitoring and Management in Swiss Agroecosystems

Rising international trade and travel, coupled with unprecedented rates of global warming, promote the spread and establishment of alien invasive pests, pathogens and weeds. In addition to support to the management of already occurring alien noxious organisms, this project strengthens activities aimed at anticipating and preparing for the arrival of new species. Through predictions of their potential future distribution, we target surveillance to improve the likelihood of early detection, monitor spatial spread and provide timely recommendations for containment and control. Because new species often enter Switzerland from its southern borders, the experience gained on case studies of current relevance in Ticino will be capitalized in northern regions in the future.
