See the Horus list.

Factsheets on Brazilian invasive species (in Portuguese & Spanish)
Click on entries in the species list below to see fact sheets that have have developed by The Horus Institute for Environmental Conservation and Development. You can also read these fact sheets at their web site---their site includes links to photographs not on our versions. 
Note: our nomenclatural authority for Brazilian invasive plant names is W3Tropicos. We do not have a standardized authority for Brazilian invasive animal names.

More documents and photographs of Brazilian invasives
In addition to the Portuguese/Spanish fact sheets, we have other resources (i.e. photographs, Species Management Summaries) for the following species known to be invasive in Brazil. For a more complete list of our invasive species photographs/documents, visit our management library or our photo archives.
