INVAsive biology of XENopus laevis in Europe: ecology, impact and predictive models

  • BiodivERsA
  • International Research Project
  • 2015 to 2017

We propose to study the invasive biology of Xenopus laevis by bringing together a team of experts from five countries that will provide complementary data to better understand the biology, dispersal patterns, physiology, impact on local populations, and the invasive potential of this species. Moreover, we will evaluate an ongoing eradication program of this species.
