An assessment framework based on key habitats in Samoa:

* cloud forest and uplands

* lowlands, coastal strand

* nearshore marine, offshore marine, and rivers and streams

* climate change, air quality, waste disposal, renewable energy, and population pressures.

The Jungle myna (Acridotheres fuscus) was first recorded in Upolu in 1965, followed by the Common myna (Acridotheres tristis) in 1988 (Watling, 2001). It is believed they were introduced to control livestock ticks and unexpectedly became an invasive species; over the past two decades their populations have increased dramatically.

This document provides information regarding issues surrounding the myna: why mynas are a problem and what methods are currently been implemented to control and/or eradicate mynas from cities, islands, and countries.

Biotechnology has been used by Samoan farmers for many years to crossbreed plants and animals. However, modern biotechnology, where genes are transferred between species, is a relatively new concept in Samoa. The products of modern biotechnology are often referred to as Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs). Bio-safety is a way of reducing the potential risks that may result from modern biotechnology and its products.

This National Biosafety Framework is for the safe transfer, handling and use of Genetically Modified Organisms
(GMOs) resulting from modern biotechnology
