About this book

Features include: case studies from around the world, with some emphasis on islands; a focus on biodiversity, but with some consideration of traditional agriculture; advice on national management plans, including risk analysis.

"The toolkit was designed and partially drafted at an international workshop in Kuala Lumpur, March 1999, in conjunction with the Global Invasive Species Programme, which receives support from many national and international organizations. The primary target readers are involved in environment and biodiversity conservation and management, but public policy makers, quarantine service, and others may also find insight. Human disease is not considered, and most of the case studies are from agriculture, forestry, and other traditional sectors."--SciTech Book News


Building strategy and policy; prevention; early detection; assessment and management.
