Recent activities on invasive alien plants in Sweden

Sweden is exploring the possibilities to better use citizen science to collect information about invasive alien species and the new Species Information Gateway (Artportalen Website) has been launched.

In addition, eradication and control projects are being carried out by the county administrative board for Fallopia japonica (Polygonaceae, EPPO List of IAP), Heracleum mantegazzianum (Apiaceae, EPPO List of invasive alien plants), Nymphoides peltata (Menyanthaceae) and Rosa rugosa (Rosaceae).
