About this book

Biological invasions are one of the major threats to our native biodiversity. The magnitude of biodiversity losses, land degradation and productivity losses of managed and natural ecosystems due to invasive species is enormous. The ecological and environmental aspects of non-native invasive plants are of great importance to (i) understand ecological principles involved in the management of invasives, (ii) design management strategies, (iii) find effective management solutions for some of the worst invaders, and (iv) frame policies and regulations.

The objectives of this book are to discuss (i) ecological approaches needed to design effective management strategies, (ii) recent progress in management methods and tools, (iii) success and failure of management efforts for some of the worst invaders, and (iv) restoration and conservation of invaded land.

In an effort to achieve these objectives, contributing authors have strived to provide up-to-date information on the management of non-native invasives. Chapters included in the book are peer-reviewed by international experts working in the area. Readers will get a unique perspective on ecological aspects of the management of invasives. The book will be useful to graduate students, researchers, managers and policy makers involved in the management of exotic invasives.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“It illustrates well the wide range of approaches in the historical, biological and socio-economic context. The advantage of this is the substantial level of detail based on personal experience, because specialists have written the individual chapters. … Inderjit’s book is also valuable because it is always convenient to see, e.g., a presented case study in a wider context and to have the chance to see more of them, which is possible only in books. For plant invasion ecologists, Inderjit’s book can be recommended … .”­­­ (Jan Pergl, Folia Geobotanica, Vol. 46, 2011)
