This report presents a snapshot of a development in progress. It includes both summaries of current achievements and processes and tools in place (paragraphs “Current invasive, non-native plant categorization efforts” and “Toolbox”) and a number of opinions on future perspectives (“Perspectives”). We highlight in this section some of the main current issues for an effective biosecurity system against invasive plant species in the Hawaiian Islands.
