About this book

Comprised of a series of essays from botanical experts across the globe, Invasive Plant Ecology presents a comprehensive examination of the problem of invasive plant species that goes beyond a discussion of the status of invasive plants and their impacts on different ecosystems. It provides a foundation in invasion ecology, through examination of ecological theories that explain plant invasions. Contributors discuss the role of ecological attributes such as plant life history, seed banks, and fire and management practices with respect to plant invasion. Invasive Plant Ecology examines the physiological basis for invasive species success and gives ecological management and restoration guidelines for invaded areas.
