Citizen Science Application - Invasive Alien Species in Europe [link]Paper  doi  abstract   bibtex   
The JRC, within the framework of MYGEOSS initiative devoted to citizen science, has developed an application for Apple and Android smartphone devices called ” Invasive Alien Species Europe”, which allows users to report the presence of the 37 species currently listed as Invasive Alien Species (IAS) of Union concern (EU Regulation 1143/2014) on the European territory. User friendly factsheets and pictures guide the user towards the species likely to have been observed. Once validated, data will be fed into the European Alien Species Information Network (EASIN). The App is expected to stimulate citizens' awareness to the IAS issues and to involve them in IAS monitoring and reporting. In addition, the information generated through the App could supplement Member States Competent Authorities surveillance systems. The App can be freely downloaded from Google Play and Apple Store.
