Global Invasive Species Information Network - GISIN
Description 

The Global Invasive Species Information Network is an index to multiple databases containing information about invasive species. It provides a very complete search interface. For each species, it offers a country-based distributed map, a list of countries where the species is considered invasive and lists of resources and occurrences for the species.

Abstract 
The Global Invasive Species Information Network (GISIN) was formed to provide a platform for sharing invasive species information at a global level, via the Internet and other digital means. A group of collaborators lead by the United States Geological Survey, are developing the GISIN as a Web-based network of databases that are connected by a common set of data types. The resulting network, or GISIN, provides increased access to data and information that will in turn help detect, rapidly respond to, and control invasive species.
