New Publication: Invasive and Introduced Plants and Animals - Human Perceptions, Attitudes and Approaches to Management

23 March 2011

This book addresses the broader context of invasive and exotic species, in terms of the perceived threats and environmental concerns which surround alien species and ecological invasions. As a result of unprecedented scales of environmental change, combined with rapid globalisation, the mixing of cultures and diversity, and fears over biosecurity and bioterrorism, the known impacts of particular invasions have been catastrophic. Including a wide range of case studies from around the world, this book raises critical issues to stimulate a much wider debate.
