We connect invasive species research and practice to help manage the impact of invasive species in NYS.


Invasive species pose a serious threat to New York’s natural resources, and NYISRI is committed to improving the scientific basis of invasive species management. We serve the scientific research community, natural resource and land managers, and state offices and sponsored organizations by through promoting research, creating networks, and providing support.


Identify research needs from managers and coordinate research to meet those needs.


Foster knowledge exchange between diverse organizations and individuals through conferences and webinars.


Support managers and researchers by synthesizing research, communicating funding opportunities, and creating management protocols.
