Produktbeschreibung

Invasive plants have an impact on global biodiversity and ecosystem function, and their management is a complex task.

The aim of this book is to discuss fundamental questions of invasion ecology, such as why particular communities become more invasible than others, what the mechanisms of exclusion of native species by invaders are, and whether invasion can be predicted.

In addition, agricultural practices influencing invasion, the environmental and economic costs of invasion as well as possible management strategies are discussed.

Readers will get a unique perspective on invasion ecology through employing general principles of ecology to plant invasions.
