Reviews

"The endorsements on the back cover of this book are highly laudatory, and rightly so. This volume is global in its utility and certainly should be part of the toolkit of anyone in the invasive biology business."--Quarterly Review of Biology"A remarkable and profound synthesis, describing the state of modern invasion biology, successes and failures in managing invasions, and how to factor in economics while developing realistic, effective policies to deal with introduced species. Excellent case studies keep the entire enterprise anchored in the real world. Bioeconomics of Invasive Species is a must read for invasion biologists."--Journal of Biological Invasions"[Bioeconomics of Invasive Species] is valuable as a source of reliable information related to the management of invasive species ranging from plants to animals to microbes. Its messages are well worth studying for readers interested in biology, ecology, economics, geography, and related applied disciplines."--BioScience"This book addresses an important gap in the literature on biological invasions - the link between key advances in invasion ecology and economics. The volume focuses on aquatic invasions in North America, but the far-reaching results have crucial implications for improving our ability to manage invasions in general. This is an important milestone in invasion ecology." --David M. Richardson, Deputy Director (Science Strategy), Centre for Invasion Biology, South Africa"With its deliberate balance between case histories and synthetic chapters, this volume provides a comprehensive view of what we know and more important what we don't know yet about assessing the economic costs of invasive alien species."--Richard N. Mack, Professor of Ecology, Washington State University"Keller, Lodge, Lewis and Shogren have produced the best book on invasive species I have read since Charles Elton''s 1958 classic, "The Ecology of Invasion by Animals and Plants." Whereas Elton examined the ecology of invasive species, Keller et al examine the economics of invasive species. And it is economic analysis we need now if we are to motivate governments to do what is needed to stem the onslaught of biological invasions."--Science Chronicles "The endorsements on the back cover of this book are highly laudatory, and rightly so.
