Dear list members,

on behalf of Suzanne Lommen I send this survey to the list.




Dear colleagues,

We kindly ask for your help and invite you to participate in a survey
on *perception
of biological control against non-native invasive plants (invasive weeds)*.

This survey is intended to gather information on perceptions of classical
biological control of invasive weeds among scientists, practitioners and
policy makers. Biological control involves the identification and release
of natural enemies, normally arthropods or fungi, from the native range of
the invasive plant/weed for the permanent control of the target weed in the
invaded range.

The survey has up to 20 short questions and should take no more than 15
minutes to complete. All feedback provided is anonymous and will be treated
confidentially. The results will be presented at the XV International
Symposium on Biological Control of Weeds in August this year.

We really appreciate if you could complete the survey *before July 4th*.

With kind regards,

Richard Shaw (CABI), Elizabete Marchante (University of Coimbra), Hélia
Marchante (Instituto Politécnico de Coimbra), Laura Verbrugge (University
Twente), Suzanne Lommen (Leiden University)
