Networks of Invasionbridges a conceptual gap between ecological network studies and invasion biology studies. This book contains chapters detailing pressing concerns regarding invasive species in food webs, but also extends the idea of networks of invasion to other systems, such as mutualistic networks or even the human microbiome.

Chapters describe the tools, models, and empirical methods adapted for tackling invasions in ecological networks.

  • Contains chapters detailing pressing concerns regarding invasive species in food webs
  • Deals with topical and important reviews on the physiology, populations, and communities of plants and animals
Dave Bohan is an agricultural ecologist with an interest in predator-prey regulation interactions. Dave uses a model system of a carabid beetle predator and two agriculturally important prey; slugs and weed seeds. He has shown that carabids find and consume slug prey, within fields, and that this leads to regulation of slug populations...
