September 20: Allochthonous, a real threat

Given the great success and the numerous requests, we repeat the appointment dedicated to non-native species.

The alien and invasive plant species that populate the Friuli Venezia Giulia region represent a threat to biodiversity, with impact on human health and socio-economic consequences. But what are the routes through which these plants came to us and what makes them so dangerous? And which of our wild plants represent a threat to other continents?

Appointment on Sunday 20 September at 10.30 at the Carsiana Botanical Garden to deepen this interesting and very important topic with Marco Valecic of the Biodiversity Service.

For the occasion, the booklet published by the FVG Region, ERSA and the Naturalistic Educational Center of Basovizza will be distributed free of charge to all participants: "Invasive exotic plant species in FVG - Recognition and possible containment measures".
