Title: Asian-Pacific Alien Species Database (APASD)
Title abbreviated: APASD
Creator: National Institute for Agro-Environmental Sciences <Tsukuba> / Working group for the APASD
Abstract: APASD provides information on invasive alien species (IAS) in the Asia-Pacific countries and regions. IASs are classified into nine categories: insects, mammals, nematodes, other animals, bacteria, fungi, plants, viruses, and other organisms. This category (organism group) is a key for searching the data. Each IAS data record consists of the following data fields. Among them, "country or region", "species name" and "year of invasion or detection" can be keys for an IAS search. Data fields: country or region name, organism name (organism group, order, family, species name, English common name), year of invasion or detection, native region, situation of establishment, taxonomic description, expansion of distribution area, environmental impact, economic damage, reproduction, growth, countermeasure, similar species, host species, habitat, photo images, references, and writer's name and affiliation.
