INVASIVE EXOTIC TREES IN THE CONSERVATION UNITS IN CURITIBA, BRAZIL
One of the greatest challenges worldwide is the loss of biodiversity in Conser¬vation Units (CUs) due to their infestation by invasive exotic trees (IETs). Aiming to provide additional basis to a better understanding of the IETs global dispersion as well as to their local control, the results from a qualitative and quantitative IETs survey (DBH ≥ 15 cm) at 22 CUs of Curitiba (Parana State, Southern Brazil) are presented and discussed.
