The North European and Baltic Network on Invasive Alien Species (NOBANIS) provides an umbrella structure for cooperation between 17 nations in the region and has developed a network of common databases on alien and invasive species including those considered currently invasive, as well as species that may become invasive. One NOBANIS goal involves establishing administrative tools for preventing unintentional dispersal of invasive alien species. The alien species database can be searched by nomenclature, habitat, group, country, or by multiple factors. The NOBANIS website includes nearly 60 invasive species fact sheets, most with full color photos. Another information set presents statistics for invasives in each NOBANIS country. National regulations covering invasive species in nine nations, plus global conventions and agreements also can be found at the website.
