Summary
"Invasive Species in a Changing World brings together leading scientists from around the world to examine the invasive species phenomenon and to consider the mutual interactions between global change and invasives that are likely to occur over the next century. Contributors focus on the proposition that global change will exacerbate the invasive species problem, and they set forth the idea that invasives are themselves a global change element that need to be considered in global change scenarios." "Invasive Species in a Changing World provides readers with the background and knowledge they need to begin developing strategies to combat the invasive species problem, and it is essential reading for anyone concerned with the impact of invasive species on ecosystem health and functioning."--Jacket
