Invasive Plants: Ecological and Agricultural Aspects
Edited by S Inderjit
Invasive plants have an impact on global biodiversity and ecosystem function, and their management is a
Hardback XVIII, 283 p ISBN 9783764371371
The aim of this book is to discuss fundamental questions of invasion ecology, such as why particular
communities become more invasible than others, what the mechanisms of exclusion of native species
by invaders are, and whether invasion can be predicted.
In addition, agricultural practices influencing invasion, the environmental and economic costs of invasion
as well as possible management strategies are discussed. Readers will get a unique perspective on invasion
ecology through employing general principles of ecology to plant invasions.
