Advanced Invasives is the leading invasive plant species consultancy in the UK.
Founded in 2016 by Dr Dan Jones of Swansea University’s Department of Biosciences, we bring together decades of scientific expertise to tackle the commercial, technical and social problems caused by invasive non-native plant species.
We understand that our clients’ concerns are not invasive plants in themselves, but rather the uncertainty, legal risks and costly delays arising from them. Our projects cover six main areas: research and testing, invasives strategy, information design, risk mapping and GIS, complex site survey, and expert witness services.
Intelligent strategy, better public understanding, and well designed information is needed to move beyond reactive and costly fire-fighting of invasive plants.
Project-by-project we are setting a new standard in the industry; thinking that is scientifically credible, environmentally sound, and above all cost effective.
