Invasive Species Council of British Columbia

Research Collection

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

The Invasive Species Research Hub was first developed to foster connections, align research efforts and facilitate communication and collaboration within the invasive species community in the Pacific Northwest under the direction of the Research Advisory Committee with funding from the British Columbia Ministry of Forests, Lands, Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development.

The format of the Research Hub is currently being reviewed and reimagined. While we work on the improved version of the hub, please let us know if you’d like to join by completing the form below. You will also be invited to communicate ongoing with other members in the Research Hub’s Slack channel.



A Road Map for Invasive Species Research in BC” (the Road Map) is an ever-evolving guide created by ISCBC in collaboration with invasive species researchers and practitioners through financial support from the Province of British Columbia.

The latest edition of the Road Map was produced in 2020. The Road Map shares current knowledge and identifies research needs with funders and other invasive species experts across the province, as well as fostering collaboration to prevent and mitigate negative environmental, economic, cultural and social impacts from invasive species.

The Road Map lays out six research themes with corresponding research priorities and indicators of success, identified as key to determining future needs and priorities for invasive species research relevant to BC. The Road Map will continue to be reviewed and updated based on input from future Invasive Species Research Conferences.


The Invasive Species Research Conference is typically convened by ISCBC every three years. In 2020, the conference was postponed due to the global COVID-19 pandemic. In place, the Invasive Species Research Virtual Mini-Symposium was held on August 18, 2020. Stay up to date on future conferences and events in Professional Events.
