About the Research Hub

Connect and collaborate with fellow invasive species researchers and practitioners from across the Pacific Northwest. 

The Invasive Species Research Hub has been developed to foster connections, align research efforts and facilitate communication and collaboration within the invasive species community in the Pacific Northwest.  Membership of the Invasive Species Research Hub is free of charge. Registered members can post their profile - as a researcher, practitioner, or both - and search for other members across a variety of fields. Members can also directly connect with other members and start online discussions on invasive species research-related topics. The hub was developed under the direction of the Research Advisory Committee with funding from the British Columbia Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development.
