A long-term investigations of invasive woody plant was instigated in the late 1980s. This worldwide search of invasive events and associated literature has resulted in the collection of a extensive amount of information. Due to money constraints and a general lack of resources much of this information has yet to be fully collated, although six databases already exist.

Some preliminary information is nevertheless available in the following form:
