      Invasive alien species (IAS) exact large biodiversity and economic costs and are a significant component of human-induced, global environmental change. Previous studies looking at the variation in alien species across regions have been limited geographically or taxonomically or have not considered economics. We used a global invasive species database to regress IAS per-country on a Cited by: The Global Invasive Species Database is a free, online searchable source of information about alien and invasive species that negatively impact biodiversity.
