About this book

Bringing together reasons for why and where weeds occur and the ecological importance of weed management, this updated edition provides an in-depth study of plant ecology, with greater coverage of invasive plant biology and more concise statistics.

As an undergraduate text [the book] does a superb job of traversing the wide expanse of ecology... several chapters should be key components of any course on understanding weed ecology - Biological Invasions"
