Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) Information Resource for the United States Geological Survey

The Nonindigenous Aquatic Species (NAS) information resource for the United States Geological Survey located at the Wetland and Aquatic Research Center. This site has been established as a central repository for accurate and spatially referenced biogeographic accounts of nonindigenous aquatic species. The program provides scientific reports, online/realtime queries, spatial data sets, regional contact lists, and general information. The data is made available for use by biologists, interagency groups, and the general public. The geographical coverage is the United States.

For more information on the NAS program see the NAS Flyer.

 

National Invasive Species Information Center (NISIC) - Gateway to invasive species information covering Federal, State, local, and international sources.

The National Invasive Species Information Center (NISIC) was established in 2005 at the National Agricultural Library to meet the information needs of users including the National Invasive Species Council (Council). NISIC creates and manages the www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov Web site. The Web site serves as a reference gateway to information, organizations, and services about invasive species.
 
The Center grew out of NAL's leadership in the development of the Invasivespecies.gov Web site for the Council. In June 2000, Invasivespecies.gov was launched as a joint collaboration between NAL, the U.S. Geological Survey, National Biological Information Infrastructure, and the Council. The site began with less than 200 links to external resources. By June 2005 the Web site had more than 12,000 unique links. A major redesign was needed to enhance access to this growing wealth of resources.
 
A new Web site, www.invasivespeciesinfo.gov, managed by NISIC was launched in 2005 built largely on the general content from the original www.invasivespecies.gov Web site.
 
Invasivespecies.gov is managed by the staff of the National Invasive Species Council to meet the administrative, communication, and facilitation needs specifically related to the business and activity of the Council.

 

National Agricultural Pest Information System (NAPIS) Pest Tracker

This website publishes survey maps for pests of agricultural and forest commodities and provides links to pest news and information. The National Agricultural Pest Information System (NAPIS) stores and manages pest survey data that is collected by CAPS (Cooperative Agricultural Pest Survey) and other PPQ (Plant Protection and Quarantine) survey programs. Detection surveys are one tool used to manage the introduction of exotic pests.

 

Invasive Plant Atlas of the United States

 

USDA PLANTS Database

The PLANTS Database provides standardized information about the vascular plants, mosses, liverworts, hornworts, and lichens of the U.S. and its territories. It includes names, plant symbols, checklists, distributional data, species abstracts, characteristics, images, crop information, automated tools, onward Web links, and references. This information primarily promotes land conservation in the United States and its territories, but academic, educational, and general use is encouraged. PLANTS reduces government spending by minimizing duplication and making information exchange possible across agencies and disciplines.
 
PLANTS is a collaborative effort of the USDA NRCS National Plant Data Team (NPDT), the USDA NRCS Information Technology Center (ITC), The USDA National Information Technology Center (NITC), and many other partners. Much of the PLANTS data and design is developed at NPDT, and the Web application is programmed at ITC and NITC and served through the USDA Web Farm. Here’s more information about who does what on the PLANTS Team, our Partners, and our Data Contributors.
