The Midwest Invasive Species Information Network (MISIN) is a regional effort to develop and provide early detection and response resources for invasive species.

Our goal is to assist both experts and citizen scientists in the detection and identification of invasive species in support of successful management.

This effort is being led by researchers with the Michigan State University Department of Entomology laboratory for Applied Spatial Ecology and Technical Services in conjunction with a growing consortium of supporting partners.
