Abstract

Invasive alien species are a recognized global threat to biodiversity, and their costs to agriculture, forestry, fisheries, and public health are thought to be enormous. No comprehensive overview exists of the invasive alien species issue in Canada. Alien Invaders in Canada's Waters, Wetlands, and Forests aims to bridge this gap. It is a collection of papers from experts in several disciplines who discuss and analyse invasive species from a variety of perspectives: invasion pathways, affected sectors, management and control, and national and international collaborations.
