Abstract

This chapter begins with a discussion of the impact of invasive species throughout human history, and the role of trade, transport, and travel in species introductions. It then considers the ecological and economic dimensions of the problem of invasive species, and policy and management options. The need to recognize the global dimension of the problem is discussed.
