The Global Invasive Species Database was developed by the IUCN/SSC Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG) as part of the global initiative on invasive species led by the Global Invasive Species Programme (GISP). It provides global information on invasive alien species to agencies, resource managers, decision-makers, and interested individuals. The database focuses on invasive species that threaten biodiversity and covers all taxonomic groups from micro-organisms to animals and plants. Species information is supplied by expert contributors from around the world and includes; species' biology, ecology, native and alien range, references, contacts, links and images.

Inside the realisation of scientific project Biological Database and GIS (no. 1-08-330), financed by the Ministry of Science of Republic of Croatia, the Croatian Information Service for Biodiversity is done. In realisation are involved the biologists from the Division of Biology (Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb), from the Croatian Natural History Museum, the colleagues from the University Computing Centre and our worth students of biology. Service for Biodiversity contains the information about biological specificity of Croatia and Croatian flora and fauna. Also the basic information about scientific project (field of biology) in Croatia, scientific institutions and biological journals are available. Service is still under development. The lot of materials are written only in one language (croatian or english), and only few exist in both languages. We will try to resolve this insufficiency as soon as possible. English home page is connected only with relatively small number of documents. For other material we suggest you to visit Croatian version of this Service. ... [Information of the supplier]
