Welcome to the National Early Detection, Rapid Assessment, and Rapid Response Framework prototype developed and hosted by the National Biological Information Infrastructure (NBII) Invasive Species Information Node.
This Framework prototype consists of six main components:
- A. Identification and Validation
- B. Reporting
- C. Expert Verification
- D. Occurrence Databases
- E. Rapid Assessment
- F. Planning
- G. Rapid Response
Each component of the National ED/RA/RR Framework prototype describes an activity associated with addressing the invasive species issue and provides access to resources reported in the National EDRR Needs Assessment Survey initiated in 2006. Additional resources cataloged by the NBII are also supplied.
