About this book

Biological invasions are one of the strongest drivers of global environmental change, and invasive species are now often in the public discourse. At the same time, economists have begun to take a real interest in determining how invasive species interact with economic systems, and how invaders should be controlled to optimize societal wealth. Although the work from ecologists and economists have both greatly expanded our understanding of the drivers and impacts of invasions, little integration between the fields has occurred that would allow managers and policy-makers to identify the optical expenditures on, for example, prevention and control of invasive species. Because the level of effort expended on invasive species management is intricately linked to the costs and projected benefits of that management, there is an urgent need for greater synthesis between ecology and economics.

This book brings ecology and economics together in new ways to address how we deal with the dynamics and impacts of invasive species, and is the outcome of many years of collaborative research between a small group of economists and ecologists. The outcome is clear demonstration of the utility of combining ecological and economic models for addressing critical questions in the management of invasive species.

Media reviews


"The endorsements of the back cover of this book are highly laudatory, and rightly so. This volume is global in its utility and certainly should be part of the toolkit of anyone in the invasive biology business."--The Quarterly Review of Biology
"A remarkable and profound synthesis, describing the state of modern invasion biology, successes and failures in managing invasions, and how to factor in economics while developing realistic, effective policies to deal with introduced species. Excellent case studies keep the entire enterprise anchored in the real world. Bioeconomics of Invasive Species is a must read for invasion biologists."--Journal of Biological Invasions
"[Bioeconomics of Invasive Species] is valuable as a source of reliable information related to the management of invasive species ranging from plants to animals to microbes. Its messages are well worth studying for readers interested in biology, ecology, economists, geography, and related applied disciplines."--Bi
