Abstract: NEOBIOTA is the European Group on Biological Invasions. It was founded at a meeting in Berlin 1999 as a consortium of scientists aiming at an enhanced integration of invasion research. Invasions by non-native plants, animals, fungi and micro-organisms cause increasing problems in many European countries as well as on the global scale. Introduced ‘new' species (‘Neobiota') can threaten the existing biological diversity, alter the structure and function of ecosystems and can eventually cause severe economic and human health problems. The scientists in the NEOBIOTA group work together on theoretical and applied aspects of biological invasions, but also aim at educating the public and consulting with policy makers.
