Maintenance and Eradications in Dune areas

 

One of the Pro Dunas Association’s most important work areas is the eradication of invasive alien plants.

 

Invasive alien plants have generally been introduced by humans to areas outside their native habitat and they have established themselves and spread in indigenous areas where they are harmful. An invasive species is considered harmful when it causes significant changes in the composition, structure or processes of natural or semi-natural ecosystems, putting native biodiversity (species diversity, diversity within populations or ecosystem diversity ) in danger.

 

Natural changes caused by humans in ecosystems around the globe have redistributed plant and animal species either accidentally or voluntarily. As a result of these changes some species behave invasively in their natural habitat or where they have been introduced, and altered or degraded habitats are more at risk. Once an invasion is detected, control and eradication are expensive and not always possible.

 

Identifying potential invasive species and preventing them getting established is the best way to curb a problem that increases in step with globalization.
