Invasive Plant Ecology and Management: Linking Processes to Practice (CABI Invasives Series). Oxfordshire, UK: CABI (Centre for Agricultural Bioscience International).
Bringing together ecology and management of invasive plants within natural and agricultural ecosystems, this book bridges the knowledge gap between the processes operating within ecosystems and the practices used to prevent, contain, control and eradicate invasive plant species. The book targets key processes that can be managed and the impact of invasive plants on these ecosystem processes and illustrates how adopting ecologically based principles can influence the ecosystem and lead to effective land management.
