For many decades the advance of invasive alien plant species, that affect autoctonous populations and threaten their survival, has been observed.
Some ornamental species become invasive and affect to fragile habitats like the Costa Brava cliffs and othe natural spaces. Those habitats don’t take up so much area, they bear the impacts of human activity, and even they support some unique autoctonous plant species that are treatened because of the invasive ones.
In order to avoid the intensification of this problem, the LIFE medCLIFFS project works to anticipate the introduction of new invasive alien plants by creating a collection of invasive alien plants prevention tools.
This talk is intended for professionals of the plant production industry and gardening and will be conducted by Sònia Garcia from the Botanical Institut of Barcelona, who will talk about nowadays invasive plants and what can do the industry and what is doing LIFE medCLIFFS to prevent them.
