Interesting questions for LIB
Biological invasions are a threat to Chilean biodiversity. For this reason, we have raised the following questions:
What are the invasive species in Chile?
Where are these species?
What is the nature of their interaction with native species?
What kind of impacts can an invasive species produce on native ecosystems?
What is the interaction between forest fires and plant invasions?
How does the distribution of exotic species vary at different scales (spatially and temporally)?
What is the basic information needed to develop measures of control for invasive species?
How can we increase awareness and educate society about the problem of invasive species?
Dynamic of Teline monspessulana (L.) K. Koch, in relation to the regime of forest fires.
The objectives of LIB are:
To generate and develop data-bases on exotic species in Chile, in order to develop risk-analysis tools.
To spatially monitor and model biological invasions.
To establish a collaborative network between the academic world and public and private organisms, which are in charge of controlling biological invasions.
To inform and educate about the causes and consequences of biological invasions in Chile.
