This open access volume presents a comprehensive account of all aspects of biological invasions in South Africa, where research has been conducted over more than three decades, and where bold initiatives have been implemented in attempts to control invasions and to reduce their ecological, economic and social effects.

The lessons to be learned from a biological perspective on the phylloxera invasion of the wine-producing regions of the world are threefold.

First, to manage invasions we need to look for them and know what we are looking for. “This is a book worth reading, but also to come back to for reference on several occasions.

It could well become one of those core references for the introductory sentences of many papers and proposals on biological invasions stating the impacts of IAS before setting out the more specific research questions.” (Katharina Dehnen-Schmutz, Basic and Applied Ecology, May, ).

Invasive Species in a Changing World brings together leading scientists from around the world -- including Carla M. D'Antonio, Jeffrey McNeely, Robert Sutherst, David Richardson, and others -- to examine the invasive species phenomenon and to consider the mutual interactions between global change and invasives that are likely to occur over the.

Biological invasions are a major force of change, affecting many dimensions of life on Earth. Invasions result when species colonize new geographic regions, which are disjunct (isolated) from existing populations. Humans have dramatically altered invasion dynamics, especially with the global expansion of trade in modern times.
