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.
