List of invasive alien vertebrates relevant to Luxembourg

Originally compiled for assessments after the ISEIA protocol, this list mentions the invasive alien vertebrates present in Luxembourg and/or occurring and creating problems in at least one of the three adjacent EU member states. It is updated when new species appear. This list will provide a basis for the establishment of a national list of invasive alien species of Luxembourg concern pursuant to Article 12(1) of the EU Regulation 1143/2014 on Invasive Alien Species.
