Project Abstract

We propose developing an Alaska node for the iMapInvases database, to be managed and maintained by AKNHP. Given that the most extensive efforts at assessing and controlling invasive animal species in Alaska has taken place within ABSI, we propose a pilot project using Alaska Maritime Refuge data to populate and test the database –recognizing of course this would likely take a commitment from the Refuge and/or ABSI staff. We imagine that the database and be established by fall of 2013 and current legacy data for invasive animals can be identified, prioritized and entered by May of 2014.

Supplemental Info: None Provided.
