Linking Climate Change and Invasive Species Policies

Whether through habitat fragmentation, shifting temperature regimes, opening up new invasion pathways, or other mechanisms, climate change will deeply affect invasive species management. ELI studies the interactions between climate change and invasive species management and works to increase consideration of climate in aquatic invasive species management and to guide development of policies for movement of species internationally.


  • Effects of Climate Change on Aquatic Invasive Species. The interaction of climate change and aquatic invasive species is not well understood. This ELI-authored report recommends ways in which state can consider climate change in their aquatic invasive species management plans.
