Great Lakes Aquatic Nonindigenous Species Information System (GLANSIS)

By December 2  7, we will have completed and published a Great Lakes  ANS database being developed through collaboration between NOAA's  National Center for Research on Aquatic Invasive Species (NCRAIS, R.  Sturtevant & D. Reid), the USGS Center for Aquatic Resource Studies  (CARS, Pam Fuller), and Redpath Museum, McGill University (Dr. A.  Ricciardi).  GLANSIS will exist as a database searchable from the  GLERL website and as a component of the national USGS Nonindigenous  Aquatic Species Database (NAS).   NAS is a central repository for  accurate and spatially referenced biogeographic accounts of  nonindigenous aquatic species.  It includes scientific reports,  online/realtime queries, spatial data sets, regional contact lists,  and general information. The data are made available for use by  biologists, interagency groups, and the general public. GLANSIS   serves  as the Great Lakes "node" of NAS.  The target audience is the public,  students, researchers, managers, and policy makers. The general   public  will benefit from having a resource for authoritative nonindigenous  species information. Students will have access to organized   biological  information and scientific citations. Researchers, managers, and  policy makers will have a reference tool by which to analyze aspects  of the aquatic invasion history and AIS characteristics in the Great  Lakes to help answer management and policy questions.   During CY 2  8, we expect to refine the GLANSIS interface in response  to user feedback, increase its transparency for our non-technical  audiences (e.g., by developing FAQs, glossary, etc - as needed),  complete development of a poster (draft under development in  collaboration with FWS) featuring photos of most of the Great Lakes  Nonindigenous Species, and conduct an outreach campaign to increase  the awareness of the GLANSIS system among our target audiences.

The Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Research Inventory is an
interactive, Internet-based, searchable database created as a tool to collect and disseminate
up-to-date information about research projects in the
Great Lakes - St. Lawrence Region.
