About this book

The state of Florida has one of the most severe exotic species problems in the world. As much as a quarter of many taxa in Florida are non-native, and millions of acres of land and water are dominated by nonindigenous species. Strangers in Paradise is the first comprehensive volume to address a large, diverse region and the full range of nonindigenous species, the problems they cause, and the methods and impediments to dealing with them. It emphasizes solutions and relates the situation in Florida to problems faced by other states. An important guide for anyone involved with control and management of invasive species.
