- Norwegian blacklist
The Norwegian blacklist ("Norsk svarteliste") is an overview of alien species in
Norway, whith ecologial risk assessments for some of the species. "Norsk svarteliste" was first published in 2007by the Artsdatabanken(species databank) and developed in cooperation with 18 scientific experts from six research institutions.
"Norsk svarteliste 2007" is the first issue, and is compiled as a counterpart to the Norwegian redlist of 2006.
Norsk svarteliste 2007
"Norsk svarteliste 2007" contains a total of 2483 species of plants, animals and other organisms, 217 of which are risk assessed. A set of criteria has been developed to ensure a standarised assessment of the ecological consequences of alien species.
The assessed species are placed in categories according to the risk they represent.
* High risk - 93 species
* Unknown risk - 83 species
* Low risk - 41 species
