IP068: Alien Species Database (with Australia)
The CEP has encouraged the use of the Aliens Database maintained by the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC) as the central database of non-native species occurrences in the Antarctic region. To facilitate use of the database, and to enhance its value as a tool to help identify non-native species, the AADC has added an online record entry form and a facility to upload images of observations / collections. Australia and SCAR encourage Members to promote the use of the Aliens Database, and would welcome feedback on these enhancements.
