9780878938117: Species Invasions: Insights into Ecology, Evolution, and Biogeography

Species invasions present significant conservation challenges, but they also provide invaluable information about the functioning of natural systems. In this edited book, experts from the fields of ecology, evolution, and biogeography explore the unique insights species invasions provide. Several key advances emerge in each discipline, and collectively they provide a template for new research that transforms invasion biology into a powerful tool for basic research in ecology, evolution, and biogeography.

Review:


"Well-written, well-organized, informative, and thought-provoking, this book should be a welcome addition to the shelves of ecologists, evolutionary biologists, biogeographers, and applied invasion scientists alike."
--A. N. van Buren and P. Dee Boersma, Integrative and Comparative Biology


"Species Invasions offers a fine compendium of ideas and examples that will be valuable to students for the number of doors it opens to scores of subdisciplines within ecology. For professionals, it represents a state-of-the-art overview of the issues involved in invasion biology."
--Michael J. Crawley, Science


"Species Invasions is sure to stimulate thought and productive research across a wide range of fields."
--Laura Foster Huenneke, Ecology


"This is a good book, and one worth buying. There is much to mine here, and even seasoned invasion biologists will find new juxtapositions to ponder. For those invasions for which we do have data, Species Invasions provides a wealth of good thinking."
--James T. Carlton, BioScience


"This volume would make an excellent starting point for a graduate class in biological invasions. The chapters are well distributed among topics and would provide minds on the edge of diving into research with a fertile foundation."
--Sarah Reichard, The Quarterly Review of Biology


"This book is not light reading; the subject material is complex and challenging. My initial impression was that the book would appeal to a narrow audience. However, I discovered broad implications for a variety of research areas; one need not be an 'invasion biologist' to draw insights and inferences from this work. I therefore recommend the text as interesting reading material for those involved in research areas such as climate change, ecology, physiology, genetics and biodiversity."
--Colin Templeton, The Forestry Chronicle


"Well-written, informative, and idea-generating. I recommend this book to anyone seeking new perspectives on invasion theory, including researchers with both applied and basic questions about native and exotic colonizers and invaders."
--Cynthia D. Huebner, Landscape Ecology
