About this book

This book provides the first comprehensive review of the fauna of alien terrestrial arthropods that have colonized the European continent and its associated islands. Directly ensuing from the DAISIE project, this is the result of the joint work of 89 authors from 27 different European countries. The book summarizes present knowledge of the arthropod invasion process, from temporal trends and biogeographic patterns, to pathways and vectors, invaded habitats, and ecological and economical impacts.

A total of 1590 species alien to Europe, including crustaceans, myriapods, mites, spiders, and insects, are listed in two volumes and 21 separate chapters that detail the different taxonomic groups. For each species, all key information - feeding regime, date and country of first record in Europe, invaded countries, invaded habitats, plant or animal host - is supplied. More detailed factsheets are provided for the 80 species considered to be most representative of the different pathways of introduction and of the diversity of impacts on ecosystems, economic activities and human and animal health.
