Introducing the Jamaica Invasive Species Database

The open source, SQL version of the I3N Database Template is the basis of the current Jamaica Invasive Species Database (JISD). The Institute of Jamaica (IOJ) through one of its departments, the Jamaica Clearing-House Mechanism within the Natural History Museum of Jamaica, is co-managing the database with the National Spatial Data Management Division (NSDMD) in Jamaica. The partnership between these two entities was formalized with a Memorandum of Understanding in May 2014. The IOJ remains the content manager for the database, and NSDMD is providing the web hosting services.

Invasive alien species listed for Jamaica by the national Invasive Alien Species Working Group (IASWG) are being entered into the Database, and the number of species to date should all be entered before the end of 2016. Below is a report on the first national Data and Information Entry Workshop held in June 2015 to train selected persons from the IASWG entities to enter data and information received into the Database. If you do scientific research or other invasive species projects in Jamaica, you are encouraged to share your data and information with us by contacting the Jamaica CHM at chm@nhmj-ioj.org.jm
