As humans have come to occupy more of the planet, and to move themselves and cargo across it more rapidly, the number of species introduced and established beyond their native range has increased exponentially. Many of these species become harmful and are termed invasive. This subset of non-native species is increasingly recognized as one of the most damaging economic and environmental outcomes from globalization. It is not possible to fully understand the introduction, establishment, and impacts of invasive species from within any single discipline. These processes depend on ecological, legal, trade, economic, evolutionary, and more factors, including social responses. Many disciplines are now studying the movement and impacts of non-native species, but as yet there is relatively little interaction among disciplines. This hampers our understanding of the issues. This book is focused on gaining insight from multiple disciplines to better understand the processes of invasion so that appropriate and wise policy can be developed.
