This page lists all the outcomes of the InvaCost project, mostly scientific articles.

  • You can download here a compacted file with the PDF of all published articles. We try to update it regularly.
  • You can also download the Special Issue of NeoBiota on the economic costs of biological invasions in different parts of the world.
  • Because InvaCost is a living database, and its content is regularly updated, some published values may become outdated with new updates. For this reason, we have created a “living figure“, which is linked to the latest version of InvaCost, and thus provides the latest values:

  • You can find below the list of published articles. They are all Open Access: each of them can be downloaded either from the link at the end of the reference, or on this web page: BiodiversityDynamics
