2 Davis Declaration calls for… global strategy to coordinate invasive species information establishment of a global distributed information system development of identification tools worldwide research & development agencies to make resources available February 2001, Davis, California

3 Invasive Species Data Types (Discussed at the North American Hub Meeting, Davis CA Feb 2002) Images, maps, photos Fact sheets Identification aids Bibliographies Educational materials URLs, URIs Other documents Organizations Experts Projects Datasets Species Lists Observations Specimens (Bolded items are also part of the I3N model)
