About the Authors
  • How does behaviour affect biological invasions? Can it explain why some animals are such successful invaders? With contributions from experts in the field, and covering a broad range of animals, this book examines the role of behaviour in biological invasions from the point of view of both invaders and native species. The chapters cover theoretical aspects, particularly relevant behaviours and well-documented case studies, showing that behaviour is critical to the success, and ecological and socio-economic impact, of invasive species. Its insights suggest methods to prevent and mitigate those impacts, and offer unique opportunities to understand the adaptive role of behaviour. Offering a comprehensive overview of current understanding on the subject, the book is intended for biological invasion researchers and behavioural ecologists as well as ecologists and evolutionary biologists interested in how organisms deal with anthropogenic environmental changes such as climate change and habitat loss.

    • Experts in the field provide a detailed overview, integrating the latest findings on the role of behaviour in the invasion process and in interactions with native species
    • Covers a wide variety of topics, approaches and study organisms, both from the perspective of the invader and the invaded community
    • Presents theoretical aspects along with well-documented case studies, offering unique opportunities to understand the adaptive role of behaviour

    Reviews & endorsements

    '[We] recommend this book to readers at the graduate level or above … We particularly recommend it to researchers who are looking for open avenues of research in invasive behavior to explore. … a diverse set of researchers will benefit from reading this timely, comprehensive overview of the behaviors that characterize invasive species.' Angela Chuang and Jordan M. Bush, Biol Invasions

    'This is a valuable resource for behavioral ecology, conservation biology, and the science of invasions.' J. Berger, Choice
