Summary: Invasive Species presents extensive information and new analyses on mechanisms of species transfer, or vectors, as the latest contribution from the Global Invasive Species Programme (GISP). Contributors assess invasion vectors and vector management in terrestrial, freshwater, and marine ecosystems for major taxonomic groups in a variety of regions around the world.Summary: Recent years have seen a steep rise in invasions of non-native species in virtually all major ecoregions. Vectors are the delivery mechanisms, resulting in increases in rates of new invasions. This title brings together information on approaches to controlling and managing invasion vectors.
