Abstract Global changes, from habitat loss and invasive species to anthropogenic climate change, have initiated the sixth great mass extinction event in Earth's history. As species become threatened and vanish, so too do the broader ecosystems and myriad benefits to human well-being that depend upon biodiversity. Bringing an end to global biodiversity loss requires that limited available resources be guided to those regions that need it most. The biodiversity hotspots do this based on the conservation planning principles of irreplaceability and vulnerability.

The Helping Islands Adapt workshop was held in Auckland, New Zealand between the 11th and 16th of April 2010 to support regional action against invasive species on islands, in order to preserve biodiversity and adapt to climate change. It arose from decisions under the Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD) relating to invasive alien species and island biodiversity.

There are three species of rat in the Pacific, the Polynesian rat Rattus exulans (the smallest), the ship rat Rattus rattus and the Norwegian rat Rattus norvegicus (the largest). Rats are one of the most damaging pests in urban zones, and this document is a guide on how and why it is necessary to control in the region.

FSM and its constituent states have undertaken to develop a National Invasive Alien Species Strategy and Action Plan (NISSAP) in 2015. This desktop study was implemented to support the development of the NISSAP.

A concise discussion is presented based on a synthesis of the data and information collated highlighting key invasive alien species already occurring in the country or at the verge of potential invasion (considering pathways of introduction), key endemic and threatened species,and threatened ecosystems with description.

Pohnpei and their outer islands are very vulnerable to the introduction of Coconut Rhinoceros Beetle (CRB) because the CRB is present in Guam, Palau, Hawaii and South Pacific. Pohnpei is located near to Guam, Palau and Hawaii and there is regular traffic by air and sea. For this reason this Emergency Response Plan (ERP) is in place not only for control/eradication but also for prevention and spread to other Islands.

 Pohnpei State NGO

Invasive Species Taskforce of Pohnpei (iSTOP) strives to enhance and preserve the natural biodiversity of Pohnpei State through collaborative efforts at all levels of our society while cooperating with neighboring states and countries to identify, prevent, and eradicate or manage/control invasive species.
