About this book

This book is the first attempt to provide an overall picture of aquatic species invasions in Europe. Its geographical scope stretches from Irish Waters in the west to the Volga River and the Caspian Sea in the east, and from the Mediterranean Sea in the south up to the Arctic Coast of Europe.

This book gives an excellent up-to-date review of aquatic species invasions in Europe. The editors have done an excellent job in collecting all these contributions, which give a nice overview of our knowledge of the introduced species in European waters. It is the standard work for invasions in European waters up to the year 2000. This book is well produced, reasonably priced and is highly recommended! (Aquatic Ecology, 37 (2003)
