A guide to the identification of the most important and potentially dangerous invasive aquatic and wetland plants in South Africa. Plant Protection Research Institute Handbook No. 16. Agricultural Research Council, South Africa. SPECIES NOT WANTED IN SOUTHERN AFRICA. The list is based on prohibited and noxious plant lists for South Africa and other countries which share many invasive species with southern Africa, namely Australia, New Zealand, United States of America (federal list), Florida (State list) and California (State list) see references after the list. The list includes species not yet in southern Africa and those which may be present but are scarce and their cultivation should be discouraged. Algae are excluded.
A Draft list of Species Reported Alien to the Caribbean. This table presents provisional information on the distribution of species reported alien in the Caribbean. The list is drawn from a work in progress database that aims to collate more detailed information on the occurrence and impact of all species known to occur as aliens in the region. The species listed are those reported to be established in the wild in marine; freshwater or terrestrial habitats. Some of the species on the list are regarded as invasive (spreading) in at least one Caribbean territory. As a working document; it is anticipated that this list will contain some omissions and errors. In particular; it is expected that the distributions of many species will be incomplete. The intention therefore is to provide a list for discussion; aiding workshop participants to contribute to and; where necessary; correct information on the occurrence and impact of alien species in the region.
