Media reviews

"This outstanding volume draws together pretty much all that can be said on this topic, ranging from the science, through policy, to practical action"
- Dr. Simon N. Stuart, IUCN Species Survival Commission, UK.

"This important and timely volume addresses two of the most serious problems affecting biodiversity conservation today: assessing the extent to which protected areas are impacted by biological invasions and the complex problems of managing these impacts. Written by leading specialists, it provides a comprehensive overview of the issues and gives detailed examples drawn from protected areas across the world"
- Professor Vernon H. Heywood, School of Biological Sciences, University of Reading, UK
