U.S. Forest Service-Institute of Pacific Islands Forestry: Pacific Island Ecosystems at Risk

A great resource for Pacific Island land managers, the Pacific Island Ecosystems at Risk (PIER) project works to "compile and disseminate reference information on exotic plant species of known or potential threat to Pacific island ecosystems." The PIER website contains invasive species lists organized by scientific name, location, life form, and common name. Species names link to brief profiles that include images, Native Range, Habitat, Description, References, common names in a number of languages, and more. PIER also offers Risk Assessments for both invasive and potentially invasive species. In addition, the site contains downloadable invasive species Survey Reports for various Pacific islands including Rota, Chuuk, American Samoa, Palau, and Tonga, to name a few.
