Bioscience An essential reference for invasion biologists and a useful addition to the library of other ecologists. It is also an excellent starting point for those new to the field. Davis has produced a thorough record of the current state of the subject, and he has charted a roadmap that will guide research for years to come.

Bulletin of the British Ecological Society. Overall, I enjoyed this book. The English is clear and the topics and examples well chosen.

J. L. Lockwood, Rutgers University It is a fascinating hybrid collection of literature review, introduction of new theory, and critique

Nature Davis writes well, and clearly. But his big contribution is to the sceptical re-examination of the field as a whole. This book will not kill it off. But if, over time, invasion biology were to become absorbed into broader ecological fields that focus on the movement of species, future historians of science might see Invasion Biology as the beginning of the end.

Övrig information

<br>Mark Davis is the DeWitt Wallace Professor and Chair of Biology at Macalester College, Saint Paul, MN, USA, where he has taught since 1981. His teaching and research interests include both plant and animal ecology. For the past twenty years, he has conducted his research at the Cedar Creek LTER site in east-central Minnesota, where his invasion research has focused on the invasibility of grasslands. In particular, he has studied how no-native grasses may influence the ability of woody plants to spread into grassland environments. He is also interested in the history, philosophy, and language of invasion biology, and of science in general.<br>
