Dec 12,  · What I would like to see this book (and others) address is the question of whether there are enough actual "new invasions" to consider it an "explosion" or whether there has simply been lots more studies done in recent years to look in detail at species /5(3). An invasive species is a species that is not native to a specific location (an introduced species), and that has a tendency to spread to a degree believed to cause damage to the environment, human economy or human health.

The term as most often used applies to introduced species that adversely affect the habitats and bioregions they invade economically, environmentally, or ecologically.

"The study of species invasions to date has focused mainly on applied aspects. This book explores the potential of invasive species studies to offer insights into fundamental research issues in ecology, evolution, conservation biology, and biogeography/5(8).

The papers in this book are based on efforts by an international group of soil ecologists to assess the biological and ecological mechanisms of earthworm invasions, their geographic extent and impacts on terrestrial ecosystems, and possible means by which earthworm.

Invasive species, any nonnative species that significantly modifies or disrupts the ecosystems it colonizes. Human activities are considered to be the most common ways invasive organisms are transported to new habitats.

Elton's book is. The topic is even more important today than it was back then, because invasive species may now be the most important cause of species extinction. This book is a classic that I would like all of my students to read."—Stuart Pimm, Columbia.

Recent years have seen a steep rise in invasions of non-native species in virtually all major ecoregions on Earth. Along with this rise has come a realization that a rigorous scientific understanding of why, how, when, and where species are transported is the necessary foundation for managing biological invasions.

Invading Nature - Springer Series in Invasion Ecology is a new book series topically spanning the breadth of invasion biology. The series is of singular importance as an integrative venue focusing on the broader ecological and evolutionary issues arising from non-native species, the impacts such species have in particular environs, trends.

This book deals with the ecological effect a species can have when it moves into an environment that it has not previously occupied (commonly referred to as an 'Invasion'). It is unique in presenting a clear and accessible introduction to a highly complex area - the modelling of biological invasions.

The book presents the latest theories and models developed from studies into this crucial area. In Invasive Species: What Everyone Needs to Know®, Simberloff will first cover basic topics such as how non-native species are introduced, which areas have incurred the most biological invasions, and how the rates of biological invasions have shifted in recent years.

He then moves on to the direct and indirect impacts of the impacts of Brand: Oxford University Press. Biological Invasions publishes research and synthesis papers on patterns and processes of biological invasions in terrestrial, freshwater, and marine (including brackish) ecosystems.

Also of interest are scholarly papers on management and policy issues as they relate to conservation programs and the global amelioration or control of invasions. Invasive Species in a Changing World. Richard J. Hobbs. Island Press, It was ok. User Review - Flag as inappropriate.
