Information from CABI Compendia datasheets is used to generate a list of species that are absent from the selected ‘area at risk’ but present in ‘source areas’ which may be chosen because they are neighbouring countries, are linked by trade, or share similar climates. The list of species can be filtered using various criteria (e.g. pathways, habitats and taxonomy) to focus on sets of potential invasive species that may require more detailed risk assessment, surveillance, public awareness or direct action to prevent their introduction and spread.
A link is provided to access the corresponding datasheets. Where a full datasheet is indicated, information is provided on detection and identification, means of entry, requirements for establishment and spread, and documented negative impacts (required for horizon scanning), and also methods for prevention and control (for response planning). The list can be output to a CSV file for analysis and prioritization outside the Compendium. This contains all the results information seen on screen plus more taxonomic categories.
There are two versions of the Horizon Scanning tool available; a premium version for subscribers to the Crop Protection Compendium (CPC) and a free version for users of the open-access Invasive Species Compendium (ISC). All users can access the filters (for pathways, habitats and taxonomic group), view the full species results list, output a CSV file of the results, and open the ISC datasheets to access further information. The premium version provides two extra filters (for plant hosts and plant parts in trade) and links to additional pest datasheets that are only available in the CPC.
Risk assessors, plant protection officers, quarantine officers, protected area managers and researchers will find that the Horizon Scanning Tool provides a quick and user-friendly means of accessing a large volume of relevant data for categorizing and prioritizing potential invasive species.
