Species targeted by the LIFE RIPARIAS project
LIFE RIPARIAS targets specific invasive plant and crayfish species well represented on the list of IAS of EU concern pursuant EU Regulation No 1143/2014. These species were notably selected for the LIFE RIPARIAS project because they strongly impact riparian and aquatic ecosystems. Some of the species are widespread and abundant in the pilot area while some are emerging species with a very restricted range. Other are still absent from the project pilot area.
Additional emerging plant and crayfish species included in the forthcoming alert list will also be targeted for early detection and rapid response through the LIFE RIPARIAS project.
