Interim profile, incomplete information
Preventative measures: The European horticultural trade and botanic gardens are increasingly working in partnership on some issues and invasive ornamental species is a highly appropriate topic for working out joint policies (Heywood & Brunel 2008). Various other Codes or guidelines exist that are aimed specifically at botanic gardens such as the German-Austrian Code of Conduct for the cultivation and management of invasive alien plants in Botanic Gardens, or the International Plant Exchange Network (IPEN) Code of Conduct and, in the United States, the Chicago Botanic Garden Invasive Plant Policy Synopsis and the Missouri Botanical Garden Code of Conduct (Heywood & Brunel 2008).
Location Specific Management Information
Falkland Islands (Malvinas) (sub-Antarctic)

S. squalidus is also identified as a potentially invasive plant species scoring 15 or above in the weed risk assessment.

2. IUCN/SSC Invasive Species Specialist Group (ISSG)., 2010. A Compilation of Information Sources for Conservation Managers.
Summary: This compilation of information sources can be sorted on keywords for example: Baits & Lures, Non Target Species, Eradication, Monitoring, Risk Assessment, Weeds, Herbicides etc. This compilation is at present in Excel format, this will be web-enabled as a searchable database shortly. This version of the database has been developed by the IUCN SSC ISSG as part of an Overseas Territories Environmental Programme funded project XOT603 in partnership with the Cayman Islands Government - Department of Environment. The compilation is a work under progress, the ISSG will manage, maintain and enhance the database with current and newly published information, reports, journal articles etc.
