ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

The monk parakeet Myiopsitta monachus (Boddaert), native to South America is an invasive species in several European countries, causing crop damage and potential negative impacts on wildlife. Only Spain and Great Britain have regulations to control monk parakeets, thus fast growth and spread of populations are likely to occur on a wide scale. Aims of this research are to update the information on the distribution and population size of monk parakeets in Europe, to assess whether differences in population growth or spread rate exist between populations and to provide recommendations to decision makers.
