1. Chromolaena odorata (herbacée) English  français     
Chromolaena odorata est un arbuste pérenne à croissance rapide originaire d'Amérique du Sud et d'Amérique Centrale. Il a été introduit dans les régions tropicales d'Asie, d'Afrique et du Pacifique, où il est devenu envahissant. Il forme des peuplements denses qui empêchent l'installation des autres espèces de plantes. C'est un concurrent agressif qui peut avoir des effets allélopathiques. C'est aussi une mauvaise herbe pour l'agriculture et les plantations commerciales.

3. Gambusia affinis (poisson) English  français     
Gambusia affinis est un petit poisson d’apparence inoffensive, originaire des eaux douces de l’est et du sud des Etats-Unis. Il est devenu un problème dans de nombreux cours d’eau à travers le monde, suite à son introduction, le siècle dernier, comme agent de lutte biologique contre les moustiques. En général, il s’est avéré moins efficace que les prédateurs indigènes de moustiques. Grand prédateur, ce poisson mange les oeufs des poissons à valeur commerciale et s’attaque et met en péril les espèces indigènes rares de poissons et d’invertébrés. Une fois établie, la gambusie est très difficile à éliminer, aussi le meilleur moyen de réduire ses effets est de prévenir à l'avenir sa propagation. L’une des principales causes de sa propagation persite, à savoir son introduction intentionnelle par les agences de lutte contre les moustiques. G. affinis est étroitement apparenté à G. holbrooki, qui a été autrefois classé comme une sous-espèce. Leur apparence, leur comportement et leur impacts sont presque identiques et ils peuvent donc être traités de la même façon en ce qui concerne les techniques de contrôle. Les mentions de G. affinis en Australie font en réalité références en réalité à G. holbrooki.

5. Psidium guajava (arbre, arbuste) English  français     
Psidium guajava est un arbre ou un arbuste tropical. Il est originaire d'Amérique centrale, du Mexique jusqu'au nord de l'Amérique du Sud. Il a été introduit dans la plupart des régions tropicales et sub-tropicales du monde pour ses fruits comestibles. Dans certains pays, la récolte, la transformation et l'exportation de ses fruits sont à la base d'une importante industrie. Du fait de sa capacité à pousser sur différents types de sols et sous plusieurs climats, P. guajava est devenu envahissant. Les pâturages et les champs sont envahis et les plantes indigènes sont concurrencées par cette espèce, qui a la capacité de former des massifs denses. Elle est considérée dans de nombreuses régions comme une plante envahissante devant être contrôlée ou éliminée. Elle est classée par diverses autorités parmi les plus hautes catégories d'espèces d'envahissantes.

1. Monomorium pharaonis (insect)
Monomorium pharaonis (the pharaoh ant) is native to Africa and has successfully invaded areas on every continent except Antarctica. It is concentrated in tropical regions but is also commonly found in temperate zones within suitable human infrastructure, especially buildings associated with the distribution or storage of food. Due to Monomorium pharaonis' ability to act as a vector for some bacterial human pathogens, its presence in hospitals is of great concern as it may increase infection rates.

2. Paratrechina longicornis (insecte) English  français 
Paratrechina longicornis est une «tramp ant», c'est à dire une fourmi qui est largement dispersée par le commerce et d'autres activités humaines. Elle est facile à identifier à vue en observant ses mouvements rapides et erratiques. Elle est très adaptable à différents environnements et elle peut être une peste majeure. Elle se trouve en grand nombre dans les maisons ou à l'extérieur et elle est capable d'exclure d'autres espèces de fourmis et éventuellement d'autres invertébrés. Elle cherche sa nourriture loin de son nid ce qui la rend difficile à trouver et à contrôler.
Noms communs: crazy ant , hairy ant , higenaga-ameiro-ari , long-horned ant, slender crazy ant

3. West Nile virus (micro-organism) English   
West Nile virus (WNV) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus native to Africa, Europe, and Western Asia. WNV is mostly transmitted by Culex mosquitoes in a cycle involving birds as amplifying hosts. However infected mosquitoes can also transmit the virus to other animals and humans. Most animals are “dead-end” hosts and do not contribute to virus spread or evolution in nature, because infection in non-avian species results in low virus levels that is insufficient for infection of mosquitoes.
Since its introduction into the United States in the New York City area in 1999 WNV has continued to expand its range across the United States and into Canada, Mexico and Central and South America. WNV causes severe disease humans, horses and other vertebrates. Most people infected with West Nile virus have only mild illness. However the virus can also cause severe neuroinvasive diseases, often leading to death. No specific medication exists to treat West Nile virus infection, and there is currently no vaccine available for humans. Control measures focus on reducing mosquito breeding habitat: standing water in urban areas, agricultural areas, and wetlands.

1. Bagaza Virus (BAGV) (micro-organism)
         Profil intérimaire, informations incomplètes
The flavivirus, Bagaza virus (BAGV) was first isolated in Bagaza, Central African Republic, in 1966, from a pool of mixed-species female Culex spp. mosquitoes. It has subsequently been found in mosquitoes in other countries in western Africa and in India, where serologic evidence suggests that this virus may infect humans. In late 2010 an unusually high number of deaths of wild birds (partridges and phesants) in Cadiz in southwestern Spain was attributed to the Bagaza Virus through a detection study. The authors of the study suggest that- although there is no evidence, it is possible that infected birds migrating between Africa and Europe could have introduced the BAGV to Spain; other explanations put forth by the authors include possible introduction through the poultry industry or trading of exotic birds for commercial or hunting purposes.
Noms communs: BAGV
2. Cardiospermum grandiflorum (vine, climber) English

5. Cricetomys gambianus (mammal)
Native to Africa, the Gambian pouched rat (Cricetomys gambianus) has been introduced to the Florida Keys, United States. This large, highly fecund, omnivorous rodent poses a threat to native ecological communities in this area. It is also a vector of a number of diseases that affect humans, and is likely to be an agricultural pest if it reaches mainland Florida.

Synonymes: Cricetomys ansorgei Thomas, 1904
6. Erythrocebus patas (mammal)
Erythrocebus patas is a medium sized terrestrial monkey, native to sub-saharan Africa. Wild populations only rarely come into contact with humans. Their shy behaviour, low densities, cryptic pelage, and large home ranges make it hard to observe them in many parts of their natural range. In some parts of their native range, mainly in west Africa, E. patas frequently invade farms, consume produce and are considered pests. The patas monkey is internationally a popular laboratory animal, used for biomedical and behavioural research. Patas monkeys were intentionally released to the Islands of Cueva and Guayacan in Puerto Rico between 1971 and 1981 by the La Parguera Primate Facility. Between 1974-1981 individuals have gradually migrated from the Islands to mainland Puerto Rico and formed free ranging population groups. They are reported to forage in gardens, destroy crops and disturb traffic. The Puerto Rican Department of Natural Resources traps and kills, or translocates individuals in an attempt to control their population.

11. Maconellicoccus hirsutus (insect)
Maconellicoccus hirsutus or the pink hibiscus mealybug, is a polyphagous pest on a wide range of ornamental and agricultural plant species. Native to tropical and subtropical Asia and Africa, M. hirsutus forms colonies covered by a white waxy, elastic ovisac material. Feeding causes plant deformation and lowered aesthetics, which can result in heavy economic losses. The overall potential annual cost of control and damages to the US economy from M. hirsutus has been estimated to be around US$ 700 million, with the global estimate being around US$ 5 billion. While chemical and physical control methods are generally ineffective, effective biological control of M. hirsutus has been acheived in a number of countries.

Synonymes: Phenacoccus hirsutus (Green)
12. Porphyrio porphyrio (bird)
The ecological similarity of the purple swamphen (Porphyrio porphyrio) to the Florida native common moorhen (Gallinula chloropus) and purple gallinule (Porphyrula martinica) have prompted efforts to eliminate this member of the rail family from Florida. It is not clear what negative consequences could result from these non-native birds but in other parts of the world they are noted for their aggressive behaviour and their habit of eating other bird's eggs.

13. Psittacula krameri (bird)
         Profil intérimaire, informations incomplètes
The rose-ringed parakeet, Psittacula krameri, is native to central Africa and Asia and is a colourful, distinctive-looking bird. It is known as one of the most successful avian invaders in the world, with established populations in over 35 countries outside its native range. P. krameri has been shown to have adverse impacts on native bird species and carry diseases. It is thought that its reproductive success, establishment and range expansion in non-native areas is related to climate similarities of non-native areas to that of its native range.
Noms communs: Perruche À Collier, ring-necked parakeet, rose-ringed parakeet, rose-ringed Parrakeet
14. Tilapia zillii (fish) English   
In its native, tropical range, Tilapia zillii is important as a food fish as well as for aquaculture. Tilapia zillii provided 70% of Egypt's fish production, however outside its native range, this freshwater fish has the ability to establish itself even in highly salinated waters, only being held back by a low tolerance to cold water. Often introduced for use in aquatic weed control, Tilapia zilli can alter native benthic communities through the elimination of macrophytes and exhibits aggressive behaviour towards other fish species.
