    n order to support the prioritisation of invasive alien species for future risk assessments, a horizon scanning methodology for the Europe was developed and implemented. The outcome was a list of 95 species, including all taxa (except microorganisms) within marine, terrestrial and freshwater environments, considered as very high or high priority for risk assessment.
