The toolkit is intended to be global in its applicability, although there is a small island focus, recognizing that the impact of invasive alien species on biodiversity is greater in small island systems. In any case, we anticipate that to be most useful and effective, the toolkit will need to be locally adapted for different countries or regions (Chapter 6). In this regard we would like to note that the case studies represent the particular expertise of the workshop participants, and the people we were subsequently able to work with during the preparation of the toolkit, and are therefore not representative of the full range of experience worldwide.
