11/02/2020 -Contribution to the upcoming 2020 edition of the WWF's Living Planet Report

AlienScenarios will contribute to a chapter of the upcoming 2020 Living Planet Report called 'Imagining the future', which will feature the role of models and scenarios and is led by IIASA. This is a great opportunity to contribute to this comprehensive study of trends in global biodiversity, to show how recent scientific advances now allows us to make projections and implement models exploring how humans may shape the future of biodiversity.

Mission statement

Our research is centred at the crossroads of Invasion Science, Macroecology, Biogeography and Conservation Biology, with a strong focus on human-environment interactions.

The following aspects are at the core of our research:

  • understanding patterns of biodiversity change at local to global scales and the processes that shape human-environment systems in an era of rapid global environmental change
  • assessing consequences of biodiversity loss and reorganization on ecosystem services and human livelihoods and addressing related issues by investigating different biodiversity conservation approaches
  • developing innovative ideas and concepts characterizing biodiversity change and biological invasion phenomena in the Anthropocene
  • engaging in science-policy communication to shape environmental policy at the national and international level and promote best practices in biodiversity conservation
  • communicating and interacting with the broader public to raise awareness for environmental change and its effects on human livelihoods and biodiversity

We are committed to a collaborative, inter-disciplinary, open-minded research culture complemented by highly active international scientific exchange. Consequently, we have established a sizable international scientific network and are open for new scientific collaborations.


In the AlienScenarios project, we will quantitatively elucidate the range of plausible future invasion trajectories, provide crucially needed data for pro-active alien species management and policy, and explore options for arriving at preferred futures through the adaptation of existing policies.
GloNAF (Global Naturalized Alien Flora) is a living database project about alien plant species and became a synonym for many related projects dealing with all kinds of scientific and policy relevant questions and studies about alien species (also other taxa) and related data.
COST Action CA17122 is a research network funded by COST (European Cooperation in Science and Technology).

The Action will address multidisciplinary research questions in relation to developing and implementing Citizen Science; advancing scientific understanding of Alien Species dynamics while informing decision-making, specifically implementation of technical requirements of relevant legislation such as the EU Regulation 1143/2014 on Invasive Alien Species.
In WeedClim we will compare agricultural weeds for their invasive potential under climate and land use change developing a management adaptation toolkit to aid stakeholders across all groups.
Update of the Checklist of Non-Native Vascular Plant Species of Austria.

The first checklist of Austrian alien vascular plants was published in 2002 and contained 1110 taxa. Additional information on the species such as their regional establishment and potential pathways leading to their introduction are given as far as they are known. The database was partially updated in 2009. As part of the update of all alien species checklist for Austria, this database will be updated. Along with the addition of many new vascular plant species the information on all alien vascular plants will be updated. Further, database categories regarding introduction pathways will be updated to current categories compatible with international standards.
