Defining an 'Invasive species'
I am researching invasive species globally that exhibit the buzz-pollination syndrome. I have used the CABI Invasive Species Compendium Open Data Repository (CABI 2022) to generate a report of invasive angiosperms listed on the CABI Horizon Scanning Tool (using the filters (1) datasheet type: “invasive species”, and (2) sub-phylum: “Angiospermae”. ).
I need to know how CABI has defined an ‘invasive’ plant as I see these are not all alien invasive plants on the list.
If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful!
