      The ecology of invasions by animals and plants by Charles S. Elton; 9 editions; First published in ; Subjects: Biogeography, Ecology, Animal introduction. The extent to which herbivores control the abundance of plant populations is a long‐standing problem in ecology (Hairston et al. ). In the plant invasions literature, the role of herbivory is often tested within the framework of the enemies release hypothesis (Keane & Crawley ). If invaders escape specialist predators, herbivory by Cited by:

The primary international forum for deliberations on plant invasions is the conference series on Ecology and Management of Alien Plant Invasions (EMAPI) which started in The concept of examining alien plant invasions in protected.

    Biological Invasions: Economic and Environmental Costs of Alien Plant, Animal, and Microbe Species, Second Edition - CRC Press Book The impact of invasive species is second only to that of human population growth and associated activities as a cause of the loss of biodiversity throughout the world. Invasions by nonnative plants alter the structure and composition of plant communities that can reduce habitat suitability and affect demography of wildlife populations, including altering population abundances, reproductive success, survival, and geographic distribution of native mammals, birds, and insects. With more than 5, species of nonnative plants established in natural ecosystems.
