Invasive species are one of the biggest threats to biodiversity.  INHS has well established research programs and partnerships working to combat this threat.  From the infamous Asian Carp to the lesser known Spotted Wing Drosophila, INHS scientists are working on prevention of future invasions and control of existing invasions.

Several of our Field stations conduct research on invasive species.  The Illinois River Biological StationKaskaskia Biological Station, and National Great Rivers Research and Education Center are at the forefront of research on the Asian Carp.  The Lake Michigan Biological Station conducts research on the many invasive threats to Lake Michigan.
