About this book

Here is an engrossing set that sheds a clarifying light on nonnative species run amok, from the wetland-damaging nutria rodent of the Gulf Coast to the alarming snakehead, a predatory, air-breathing fish capable of overland migration, to the microbes responsible for avian influenza. Invasive species are plants, animals, and microbes accidentally or intentionally introduced to environments lacking natural predators to keep these invaders in check. Invasive Species examines the effect of humans and travel in moving these organisms around the globe. Each volume discusses the most destructive plants, animals, or microbes; distinguishes invader characteristics; and details ways these species can be controlled. Packed with full-color photographs, this worthwhile set offers general biology backround and can be corrolated to curriculum study of ecosystems. Individual volumes provide excellent regional-interest reading as well.
