About this book

This book presents an unorthodox point of view on invasive species:

Invasive species are said to be devastating native ecosystems. Do the facts support this? Is "bioinvasion" a real problem, or are invasive species merely symptoms of ecosystem damage, actually helping to heal the planet?

Invasion Biology is a thorough examination of the biology of anthropogenic dispersal - the movement of species by man - and the psychology and politics driving the fear of "invaders." Marshalling a vast array of case studies taken from the scientific literature, the author examines the true nature of "invasion," and debunks much of the popular hysteria surrounding the subject.

Contrary to the claims of nativists, research shows that man-dispersed species increase biodiversity and benefit ecosystems. This powerful book points conservation biology in a new direction - incorporating dispersal as an essential strategy.
