Introduced Species Database Download
This Excel spreadsheet/database, prepared by UniServe Science, contains selected information on over 50 introduced species. The database can be given to students to complete, or added to, from their own research, or when complete can be searched on categories such as why the species was introduced, why it has become a pest, etc. Web-based resources are identified and their URLs are included in the database. Requires Microsoft Excel to open the file.
