About this book

Collection of papers presented at the Second International Conference on Marine Bioinvasions. The complexity of marine ecosystems challenges easy solutions to prevention, management, and control of introduced species. This book highlights issues of timely importance in marine bioinvasion science, including potential evolutionary consequences and the feasibillity of biological control.
