In this edited volume, global experts in ecology and evolutionary biology explore how theories in ecology elucidate the processes of invasion, while also examining how specific invasions inform ecological theory. This reciprocal benefit is highlighted in a number of scales of organization: population, community and biogeographic. The text describes example invaders in all major groups of organisms and from a number of regions around the globe.

MEDIA REVIEWS

From the reviews:

"The subject of biological invasions is typically introduced in terms of its significance for conservation and ecosystem integrity. ??? Does the book succeed overall, in its attempt to integrate ecological theory and the study of invasions? Yes: in its strong emphasis on population and community modeling, it certainly provides the basis for an emerging integration at this level of ecology. Many of the chapters undoubtedly, stimulate a substantial improvement of the degree of integration of these fields." (Joan G. Ehrenfeld, Ecology, Vol. 88 (4), 2007)
