This paper provides a categorised selection of scientific articles published in 2015, that discuss the occurrence of alien and invasive alien species (IAS) in wetlands of significance, the impacts of these species on wetland biodiversity and the management of this threat. The articles are separated into three categories a) articles that discuss impacts of IAS on biodiversity, b) articles that discuss management of this threat and c) other- articles that discuss all aspects of the threat.
The spread of invasive species compromises the ecological integrity of wetlands and has direct impacts on wetland species. Degradation and loss of wetland habitats leads to habitat loss and decline in native species populations, changes to ecosystem functioning, decline in ecosystem services all of which impact negatively on food security, livelihoods and well-being of communities. Knowledge of the identification of wetland invasive alien species, the extent of their spread and their impacts on the ecosystem and species is critical in their management and prioritising action.
