Development and presentation of an indicator of the abundance and extent of invasive non-native species. - WC0718

Description
The contractor will develop options for an indicator of invasive non-native species at GB and Country level. They will then consult the scientific and policy making community, refine as required and produce a recommended indicator with a run of data that allows for an assessment of change over time.
The indicator will have two components:
• A measure of the number and abundance of non-native species in Great Britain.
• A measure of the impacts of invasive non-native species.
