European Weed Research Society
Invasive Plants
 

Welcome

We are a working group of the European Weed Research Society (EWRS)

This working group focuses on invasive alien plant species and environmental weeds in Europe.

We aim at bringing together scientists from scattered invasive plants community as well as practitioners concerned and affected by those plants.

It is one of our main objectives to promote discussion and joint experimentation on possibilities to control invasive alien plant species and environmental weeds.

Mission

The EWRS Working Group Invasive Plants will develop an international and interdisciplinary platform dedicated to monitor, study, warn and advise on the management of invasive plant species in Europe. This mission will be achieved through the integration of existing and/or execution of especially designed research taking into account agronomic, environmental, health and economic aspects of plant invasion.
