Restoration of Island Ecosystems Workshop


This workshop will be focused on invasive alien species (IAS) on islands, their impact and management. This meeting will be developed on the scope of the project LIFE Berlengas “Contributing to the sustainable management of the Berlengas Special Protection Area (SPA), aiming the conservation of its habitats, seabird populations and endemic plants”. 


Island flora and fauna tend to be particularly vulnerable to IAS, and many insular endemics have been driven to extinction by these invaders. But awareness of the damaging impact of invasive species is growing and islands offer the possibility of long-term refuge and security if alien species can be eradicated or effectively controlled.
Over recent decades, the management and even eradication of island invasives have developed from small-scale experimentation to large scale operations. This workshop will be useful to discuss the discovery of new approaches and share experiences from the lessons of earlier operations, good and bad.
This conference will bring together experts and those who want to know more about the invaders and invaded habitats and how to control or eradicate them. 
 
Themes
• Eradication Impacts on native species. Problems in restoration projects and decisions
• Recovering habitats in inhabited/touristic islands. Communicating with the public and community engagement in ecological restoration
• Soil stabilisation. Landscape ecology and restoration.
• Economic and social implications (costs, funding, profitability, jobs, livelihoods, ecosystem services)
 
Local: Peniche, Portugal
Date: 29 - 31 January 2018
