Abstract

Management priorities for Seychelles - a basis for discussions.

Abstract

This paper discusses the strategies for controlling invasive species in Seychelles and is divided into 2 parts. The first part takes a plant-species perspective and discusses the management of single species, following the management scheme which comprises: priority species for control measures (examples include Alstonia macrophylla, Paraserianthes falcataria, Cinnamomum verum [Cinnamomum zeylanicum], Psidium cattleianum, Syzygium jambos and Clidemia hirta), priority species for close monitoring (Dillenia suffruticosa, Litsea glutinosa, Memecylon caeruleum and Ardisia crenata) and priority species for border control (Rubus alceifolius and Ligustrum robustum). In the second part, the possible milestones for the control of invasive species are discussed, including mid-term and long-term solutions.
