About this book

The book presents an analysis of the ecological, economic and social threats posed by the introduction and spread of non-native species. It provides a comprehensive description of impacts of non-native species from all five kingdoms of life across all ecosystems of the world. New insights into the impacts arising from biological invasions are generated through taking an ecosystem services perspective. This work highlights that management of biological invasions is needed not only to sustain biodiversity and the environment, but also to safeguard productive sectors such as agriculture, forestry and fisheries, as well as to preserve human health and well-being. 

Reviews

“This is a book worth reading, but also to come back to for reference on several occasions. It could well become one of those core references for the introductory sentences of many papers and proposals on biological invasions stating the impacts of IAS before setting out the more specific research questions.” (Katharina Dehnen-Schmutz, Basic and Applied Ecology, May, 2018)
“All biological invasions on ecosystem services, interdisciplinary collaboration is important for understanding and managing biological invasions to preserve the environmental, economic and societal values of interest (ecosystem services). This book is an important first step towards that goal because it comprehensively advances our understanding of the impact of biological invasions not just on biodiversity and ecosystems, but on the human species as well.” (E. M. Bennett, Biological Invasions, Vol. 20, 2018)
