The LifeWatch Alien Species Virtual Research Environment (Alien Species VRE) has been built and equipped in order to developing systems that support the scientist's work for experimental researches on alien species arrival and spread into different types of ecosystems (aquatic and terrestrial).

The Alien Species VRE is an example of the types of scientific studies that researchers on biodiversity and alien species could undertake.

The goal is to obtain a list of capabilities on the topic to be shared through the LifeWatch portal with all those interested in alien and invasive species.

LifeWatch ERIC supports the use of its tools and services through sets of etraining materials.

On LifeWatch eTraining platform you will find tutorials, etraining and elearning courses. Please access the training platform for an overview of our resources.
