New York Invasive Species Information
NEW YORK INVASIVE SPECIES INFORMATION (NYIS.INFO).. is your gateway to science-based information, breaking news and events, and innovative tools for coping with biological invaders in New York. NYIS.INFO links scientists, local, state and federal resource managers, policy setters, educators, and grassroots efforts to help you become part of the battle against invasive species in New York. NYIS.INFO is also home to the National Aquatic Nuisance Species Clearinghouse Invasive Species Database of published aquatic invasive species research.
NY Invasive Species Info grew out of the original New York Invasive Species Clearinghouse on July 1, 2015 when the Clearinghouse's New York State funding came to an end. The original Clearinghouse was founded in October 2008 with New York Environmental Protection Fund resources through a contract with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, in response to a recommendation of the November 2005 report of the New York State Invasive Species Task Force. For more information on who we are, please refer to our About page. More information on New York State's and the U.S. Federal invasive species programs can be found on our NYS Response, PRISMs & Partners, and Federal Response tabs.
