The examples of local action presented in this publication bring evidence of the threat which IAS pose to European cities and urban environments, and provide solutions which can be adopted in an attempt to combat biological invasions. Most of the case studies compiled in this publication concern actions undertaken at the local or regional levels; however it is important to highlight the international nature of IAS. Only collaboration between countries in Europe, and worldwide, will allow addressing the movement of alien species and hence their invasive spread.
