Anthropomorphic activities have caused changes to ecosystems worldwide, which include an influx of non-native species that is hard to ignore.  To highlight the causes and consequences of biological invasions “Puerto Rico Invasive Species Awareness” (#PRISA) events will be held on April 25th and 26th, 2019, at the Faculty of Natural Sciences, University of Puerto Rico – Río Piedras Campus.
