Federal Agency Survey on Systematics and Invasive Species

In response to the challenges posed by invasive species, the Systematics Subcommittee of ITAP is developing a survey of Federal agencies who provide or use systematics information. This survey will be used to determine respective levels of involvement in systematics and assess agencies' current and future capacity for research, collections and information resources within an integrated national infrastructure.

The survey results will provide a snapshot of current conditions and postulate future needs. The ITAP Systematics Subcommittee will use this information to prepare a policy paper to strengthen systematic biology programs in the Federal government.
