About the Author

Robert A. Francis is a Senior Lecturer in Ecology at King's College London, UK. He has broad research interests in aquatic, riparian and urban ecology and has been secretary of the British Ecological Society special interest group on invasive species since 2008.


"A comprehensive compendium of the major alien plant, animal and pathogen species that threaten riparian, freshwater and brackish ecosystems around the world. Each chapter, authored by leading international experts, ensures a thorough and up-to-date treatment of the history, ecology, distribution, impacts and management of over 30 key species. Taken together, this volume provides an outstanding resource for invasion ecologists, freshwater biologist and catchment scientists." Philip E Hulme, Professor of Plant Biosecurity, The Bio-Protection Research Centre, Lincoln University, Christchurch, New Zealand "Freshwater ecosystems are among the most susceptible to invasion by introduced species. Invasive plants, invertebrates, fishes, amphibians and reptiles, mammals, and pathogens are interacting with other agents of change to threaten biodiversity and disrupt the provision of ecosystem services in these ecosystems worldwide. This important volume brings together insights from 63 contributors to review available knowledge and define new challenges and priorities for research and management. It is sure to stand as the primary source of information on invasive species in freshwater ecosystems for many years to come." David M. Richardson, Centre for Invasion Biology, Stellenbosch University, South Africa "This Handbook is a must-read for anyone seriously concerned with aquatic invasions. Its detailed yet readable accounts of impacts and management approaches for important introduced plants, animals, and parasites will serve as authoritative references for years to come." Daniel Simberloff, Nancy Gore Hunger Professor of Environmental Studies, University of Tennessee and Editor-in-Chief, Biological Invasions
