Invasive species are plants, animals, and microbes accidentally or intentionally introduced to environments lacking natural predators to keep these invaders in check. The four volumes in the Invasive Species set examine the effects of humans and travel in moving these organisms around the globe. Each volume discusses the most destructive plants, animals, or microbes; distinguishing invader characteristics; and details ways these species can be controlled. Packed with colour photographs, this worthwhile set offers general biology background and can be corrolated to curriculum study of ecosystems.
