Human colonization of New Zealand has dramatically altered the resident biota, introduced numerous alien organisms to these once remote islands, and exported local species to the world. This book reviews invasions, investigates what controls the success of invaders and studies the consequences for ecosystems both on land and offshore. The book tests current theories about the success of invaders and evaluates principles for effective management of biological invasions worldwide.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"This volume of the `Ecological Studies' summarizes the `invader problem' in New Zealand, regarding terrestrial, freshwater and marine systems. ... The book gives a comprehensive overview of the knowledge about biological invasions in New Zealand and is strongly recommended to all students and scientists dealing with the worldwide invader problem. Furthermore, it will encourage researchers to fill the gaps of knowledge concerning invasion biology in this unique archipelago." (Angelika Schwabe, Phytocoenologia, Vol. 38 (1-2), August, 2008)

"Biological Invasions in New Zealand is a big, important book. It is of uniformly high quality and deserves a place in the library of an invasion biologist ... . It sets the standard for exhaustive national treatment of invasions." (Daniel Simberloff, Biological Invasions, Vol. 11, 2009)
