So FAO, So Good

The FAO Newsroom has this press release about the Food and Agriculture Organization's new website devoted to issues surrounding invasive species in African forests. The site is meant to be the home page for FISNA, the Forest Invasive Species Network for Africa. It contains a wide range of invasive species information, from profiles of invasive woody plants and forest pathogens to a contact list of experts from several countries. There are also posts about upcoming invasive species-related events and links to relevant FAO publications. While there are only 7 countries currently involved in FISNA, all of Sub-Saharan Africa is invited to join.
