Effective control of invasive alien species has been hampered by:a) the lack of monitoring for alien species at frequent enough intervals in regions of concern;b) a means to report, verify the identifications, and warn of new sightings; andc) risk assessments that predict the likelihood of a particular species becoming invasive. Europe has yet to establish a programme with the primary goal of detection, quantifying the possible risk, and warning managers before a respective alien species spreads beyond its point of initial introduction. Such a programmes should provide:a warning system to alert regional managersan inventory of alien species against which invasive alien species can be determined,a European information dissemination system,an early detection and monitoring system for alien speciesIn response to these requirements, DAISIE will deliver a European 'one-stop-shop' for information on biological invasions in Europe. It will bring together:The European Alien Species Expertise Registry: a directory of researchers and research European Alien Species Database: including all known naturalized alien species in Europe European Invasive Alien Species Information System: descriptions of all naturalized alien species known to be invasive in Europe Species Distribution Maps and Spatial Analysis: Distribution maps of all invasive alien species in Europe known or suspected of having environmental or economic impacts.DAISIE will be a pivotal instrument in developing a Europe-wide strategy that encompasses both the geographical scale of the problemand unites the study of different taxa in marine, freshwater and terrestrial environments. DAISIE will address the need for a regional network of invasive alien species information.
