Summary
"Bioinvasions and Globalization synthesizes our current knowledge of the ecology and economics of biological invasions, providing an in-depth evaluation of the science and its implications for managing the causes and consequences of one of the most pressing environmental issues facing humanity today. This graduate level text is aimed at students, professional researchers, and practitioners in the fields of ecology, invasion biology, conservation biology, and the economics of the environment. It will also be of particular relevance and use to the policy and management community."--BOOK JACKET
