Thank you for signing up to our invasive species initiative.
We hope you
enjoy the four complimentary chapters from our series of books on invasives
which you can read by clicking on the image (right).
You can find
out more about the initiative by visiting our dedicated website which includes
information on major invasive species and how they threaten livelihoods.
Our invasive species website
also features a number of videos on the impacts of invasive species in Africa
and Asia. Find out more about the issues by watching these two videos.
Livelihoods impacts in Africa
Invasive species are having a huge impact on livelihoods in Africa.

Livelihoods impacts in Asia
Likewise, invasive species are costly and damaging livelihoods in Asia.

Endoparsitoid wasp can reduce fall armyworm leaf consumption by 89%
In a recently published study led by CABI, researchers assessed, under lab conditions, the effect of the endoparasitoid wasp, Coccygidium luteum on the leaf rate consumption of its host - fall armyworm larvae. The leaf consumption rate of the parasitized fall armyworm larvae declined by 89% overall. This indicates C.luteum as a potential biological control with further studies.
CABI shares expertise on parthenium at climate smart agriculture conference
At the recent International Conference on Climate Smart Agriculture in Multan, Pakistan, CABI's Dr Kazam Ali delivered a talk on the management of the highly invasive parthenium focused on integrated pest management approaches. The event offered an excellent opportunity to share the work of our Action on Invasives programme.
Most read articles on the Invasives Blog 2019
As 2019 has drawn to a close, we have crunched the numbers and pulled together a list of the year's 20 most read articles. Fall armyworm continued to be a popular topic for our readers in 2019, as well as news on CABI's Pest Risk Analysis tool. The chart also includes a number of guest authors covering invasive species like coypu and slugs.

KNOWLEDGE FOR LIFE
New open access journal
Now accepting submissions
We are pleased to announce that CABI Agriculture and Bioscience is currently accepting scientific research submissions to this truly interdisciplinary open access journal.
The journal, managed by BMC, includes traditional themes such as plant science and plant breeding, horticulture, forestry, plant pathology, entomology and pest management, livestock and animal science, invasive species, environmental and soil science, and social sciences. The journal encourages inter- and cross-disciplinary research that connects these ‘vertical’ subject areas through ‘horizontal’ themes.
Editor in Chief
“I am particularly excited about the highly interdisciplinary and translational component of CABI Agriculture and Bioscience. This journal provides a critical new niche that does not currently exist. For example we might integrate research on social and economic aspects under a global climate change scenario with pest management applications using big data. Similarly, we expect that this journal will provide a means of publishing research that is directly relevant to feeding 2 billion more people by 2050. This kind of research just does not fit within the typical disciplinary journals.”
CABI Agriculture and Bioscience is the official journal of CABI, managed by BMC part of Springer Nature.
