Invasive and Exotic Species of North America
Entry ID: invasive

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: Invasive.org has been under development for a number of years, and is
the result of the efforts of a large number of people. In the
mid-1990's we recognized a need for quality photographs of insects and
disease organisms to use in information technology applications.

The overall objective of Invasive.org is to provide an accessible and
easily used archive of high quality images related to invasive,
introducted or exotic species, with particular emphasis on educational
applications.

In most cases, the images found in this system were taken by and
loaned to us by photographers other than ourselves. Most are in the
realm of public sector images. The photographs are in this system to
be used!
