About the Authors
  • This book focuses on introduced plant species: their origins and impacts on native vegetation and ecosystems as well as the potential for their control. Aimed at advanced students and land managers concerned with plant community conservation, it includes practical explanations, case studies and an introduction to basic techniques for evaluating the impacts of invasive plants.

    • Covers the basics from plant population and community ecology to the societal constraints and implications of invasive plants
    • Suitable reading for upper-level undergraduates and graduate students taking courses in applied plant ecology
    • Should be read by every land manager and ecological consultant charged with the responsibility of developing procedures for dealing with invasive weeds

    Reviews & endorsements

    "...a laudable effort and a good addition to anyone's collection...brings together a wide array of perspectives from ecology, management, and policy..."

    "[A]n excellent overview of introduced plants.... Written in a clear, accessible style, it should appeal to a wide range of readers. Highly recommended."

    "To those of you who teach the subject of biological invasions, I say do not hesitate to recommend it as an introductory text to your students. And to those who deal with the problem otherwise, I say find time to read it -- it will pay back the effort."
    EcoScience, Petr Pysek

    "This book is therefore a “must-have” for entomologists interested in ecological relations between phytophagous insects and invasive plants and manipulation of these relations through biological control of weeds. Professional entomologists working in biological control of weeds will find that the literature cited in this book and emphasis on basic ecological relationships, along with current issues such as nontarget effects, offer refreshing ways to think about use of phytophagous insects for control of invasive plants. The lower price of the paperback version makes it easy to purchase. This book is amply illustrated, most frequently using graphs to support the many examples of relationships described in the text."
    Ann E. Hajek, Entomological Society of America
