With contributions from forty-two scholars and environmentalists focused specifically on the impact invasive plants have had Sept. 13 2009
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
When a plant that is not native to the region appears and gains a foothold in the local ecological environment, it can prove to be overwhelmingly destructive to native plants and alter an ecological balance of flora and fauna that took tens of thousands of years to establish. That's why "Invasive Plants and Forest Ecosystems" is such a critically important contribution to the literature. The international editorial team of Ravinder Kumar Kohli (Certified Senior Ecologist, Ecological Society of America), Shibu Jose (Associate Professor of Forest Ecology, School of Forest Resources and Conservation, University of Florida, Gainesville), Harminder Pal Singh (Lecturer of biotic Environment, Centre for Environment and Vocational Studies, Panjab University, Chandigarh, India), and Daizy Rani Batish (Department of Botany, Panjab University, Chandigarh, India) have expertly compiled contributions from forty-two scholars and environmentalists focused specifically on the impact invasive plants have had and continue to represent to forest-based ecosystems around the world with respect to their sustainability, integrity, management issues, socioeconomic impact, and necessary political policies and laws to address the issues raised. "Invasive Plants and Forest Ecosystems" is a seminal work of impeccable scholarship that will prove to be a core addition to academic and governmental Environmental Studies and Forest Management reference collections.
