ITAP Subcommittees


ITAP is composed of four species/subject based subcommittees supported by an Operations and Management Subcommittee and a Communications Subcommitee. These groups form the working base of ITAP.



Vertebrate Species Subcommittee

The Vertebrate Invasive Species Subcommittee (VISS) is a catalyst for action for developing awareness and enhancing prevention and response capabilities for terrestrial vertebrate invasive species.


Invertebrate Species Subcommittee

The Invertebrate Species Subcommittee facilitates timely communication and action across federal agencies to address invasive invertebrate issues.


Plant Pathogens Subcommittee

The Plant Pathogens Subcommittee promotes proactive protection of natural and agricultural resources from invasive plant pathogens.


Systematics Subcommittee

The Systematics Subcommittee (SSC) has a 20-year vision: to strengthen national and global systematics to enable prediction, effective prevention, and management of invasive species to ensure biosecurity, public health, economic security, and environmental and agricultural security and sustainability.
