Sixty specialists are gathered at STRI to participate in the 2010 Global Invasions Network Meeting, focused on the ecology and evolution of biological invasions. The meeting, supported by the US National Science Foundation, will include discussions and updates of ongoing projects, discussions of new directions, and the development of the website

The Global Invasions Research Coordination Network group is integrating disparate hypotheses to explain invasions, and coordinating both theoretical and empirical research on biological invasions around the globe. The website in discussion will provide a resource for scientists working on invasions to find colleagues located in geographic regions of interest to aid in sampling and experimental work. Meeting discussions and activities began on Monday, October 11, and will continue until the end of the week, with visits to various STRI facilities.
