Media reviews
Cronk (Univ. of Edinburgh) and Fuller (Harvard Univ.) introduce information and case studies to address problems of invasive plants in natural ecosystems. Chapter 1 explains what invasive plants are and where plant invasions occur. Chapter 2 defines the process of plant invasions by dividing the process into six stages, and remaining sections of chapter 2 expand on the stages. Chapter 3 discusses how to plan a control program and the types of control and management currently practiced. The last two chapters focus on individual invasive species; chapter 5 provides fairly detailed information for 17 species, including species name, common name, description, category of invasiveness, origin, area where introduced, and control and management, along with illustrations for each organism. The final chapter provides limited information for some 209 species. Glossary; more than 450 references; some black-and-white photographs. This resource will be an excellent beginning for introducing awareness of invasive plants to the public. In addition, it will serve as an invaluable resource for those involved in the management of natural ecosystems. All levels. --- S. L. Timme, Pittsburg State University in CHOICE
