The problem of invasive species is one of the most critical environmental management issues of our time.
The issue is a global one, and information must move rapidly between researchers, government agencies, and managers for effective prevention and response.
CAIN's first focus for NBII is to develop an improved information management framework for invasive species data. Development of methods to share data across the Internet for combination into new information products is the goal of the program.
