Contents
Machine generated contents note: -- Table of Contents -- Chapter 1: General Information -- 1. What is a biological invasion? - Definitions of "introduced species," "native species," "invasion," "invasive" -- 2. When did the study of biological invasions begin? -- 3. Why are biological invasions important? -- 4. What controversies surround invasions and their management? -- Chapter 2: Magnitude, geography, and time course of invasions -- 1. How many introduced species become invasive? -- 2. How many biological invasions are there? -- 3. Where do most biological invaders come from, and where do they go? -- 4. When have invasions occurred and by what means? How have rates of invasions changed? -- 5. Why are island ecosystems especially vulnerable? -- 6. How are introduced species distributed among habitats, and how do they get around? -- Chapter 3: Ecological effects of introduced species - straightforward impacts -- 1. How do biological invasions modify habitats? -- 2. How do invaders compete with native species? -- 3. What are the impacts of introduced predators? -- 4. What are the impacts of introduced herbivores? -- 5. What roles do introduced parasites and diseases play? -- 6. How does hybridization with invaders affect native species? -- Chapter 4: Impacts of invasions - complications and human impacts -- 1. What is an "indirect effect"? -- 2. What is "invasional meltdown"? -- 3. Why do many impacts occur only after a time lag? -- 4. Do invaders ever just go away on their own? -- 5. What are the economic impacts of biological invasions? -- 6. What are the public health consequences of biological invasions? -- Chapter 5: Evolution of introduced and native species -- 1. What is the "paradox" of biological invasions? -- 2. How do introduced species evolve? -- 3. How do introduced pathogens and native hosts co-evolve? -- 4. How do native species evolve in response to invasions? -- 5. How does hybridization affect natives and invaders? -- 6. What are the "enemy release" and EICA hypotheses? -- 7. How can the paradox of invasion genetics be resolved? -- Chapter 6: How and why do invasions occur? -- 1. Why do people deliberately introduce animals? -- 2. Why do people introduce plants? -- 3. What were acclimatization societies? -- 4. What are some unusual motives for introducing animals? -- 5. What are "stepping stones"? -- 6. How do unintended introductions occur? -- Chapter 7: Can we predict species invasions? -- 1. Can we predict which species will become invasive if they are introduced? -- 2. What is risk assessment for biological invasions? -- 3. How is risk assessed for unplanned introductions? -- Chapter 8: How are species introductions regulated? -- 1. What international agreements address biological invasions? -- 2. How do national regulatory frameworks differ? -- 3. Do further introductions matter once a species has invaded? -- 4. How could economic measures aid regulation and management? -- Chapter 9: Detection and eradication of introduced species -- 1. What is an early detection/rapid response system? -- 2. When should an introduction simply be tolerated? -- 3. What is eradication, and when should it be attempted? -- 4. What characteristics separate successful eradications from failures? -- Chapter 10: Maintenance management of invasions -- 1. What are mechanical and physical control? -- 2. What are the advantages and disadvantages of chemical control? -- 3. What are the advantages and disadvantages of biological control? -- 4. What is integrated pest management? -- 5. What is ecosystem management? -- Chapter 11: Controversies surrounding biological invasions -- 1. Which introduced species are harmful and which are useful? -- 2. How do introduced species affect biodiversity? -- 3. How do we know a species is introduced and not native? -- 4. Are actions against introduced species xenophobic? -- 5. Are efforts to contain invasions futile? -- 6. Should animal rights govern management of invasive species? -- Chapter 12: Prospect - the Homogeocene? -- 1. What is biotic homogenization? -- 2. How will patterns of human activity affect biological invasions? -- 3. How will global climate change and other global changes affect biological invasions? -- 4. What new technologies will aid detection and monitoring of invasions? -- 5. How will new management technologies affect invasions? -- 6. Will new technologies reverse the trend? A test case. -- Glossary -- Further reading -- Appendix: Scientific names of species cited in this book -- Index
