Invasive Species Management Terminology Database Enhancement. Final Report.


The Invasive Alien Species Concepts, Terms and Context (IAS-CTC) database was developed through Partnership Funding in 2005 as an openly accessible database of terms and definitions associated with the science and management of 'invasive' and/or 'alien' species. With Partnership Facility funding in 2006, the IAS-CTC database has now been enhanced to include content from legal texts and standards associated with the International Plant Protection Convention (IPPC) and the World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE), as well as other source material. Additionally, copyright statements and linkages to source documents have been made for existing content, including that from the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD), the World Conservation Union (IUCN) and the World Trade Organization (WTO). The IAS-CTC database now has a total of 605 terms and/or term variants, and a total of 784 definitions, from 40 source documents.
