() definition is neutral with respect to ecological and economic impacts, whereas the Convention on Biological Diversity defines invasive species as those whose introduction and/or spread threatens biological.

We used the density of aliens (i.e. number of aliens divided by log 10 area of the country concerned) and not the number of aliens per se to avoid confounding effects with area (Lonsdale, ).

Sagoff [Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 18 (), –] argues, against growing empirical evidence, that major environmental impacts of non-native species are unproven.

However, many such impacts, including extinctions of both island and continental species, have both been demonstrated and judged by the public to be harmful.

Up to 16% of all animal and plant species have the potential to become invasive alien species (IAS), according to the new report. “These results suggest that there remains a high proportion of emerging alien species we have yet to encounter, with future impacts that are difficult to predict,” says Dr Hanno Seebens of the Senckenberg Biodiversity and Climate Research Centre and Lead author.
