Strategies to prevent new invasions, and management techniques to contain, control or eradicateinvasivespecies, or to mitigate their impacts, are described.Examples of methods to monitor biodiversity and to documentecosystem recovery are presented. Species in Seychelles of particular concern as invasive are listed. Part two provides detailed species accounts for the main invasive plants and animals in Seychelles (creepers, trees, bushes, aquatic plants, rats and other mammals, birds, reptiles, mosquitoes, snails, ants and other invertebrates). For each species, distribution maps, its ecology and the threats it poses, control and eradication attempts in Seychelles and the region, and detailed management recommendations and lessons learned are provided.
