This book can really be used as a slightly bulky field guide, with descriptions, good photographs, and range maps of each species and color-coded page edges for fast reference. However, it is much more than this, with sections for each invader on ecological impacts, management approaches, aspects of the species’ biology, and history of the invasion.

Invasive Species in the Pacific Northwest

Invasive Species in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle, WA: University of Washington Press, 2006. The book opens with several very clear contextual chapters on invasive problems and ends with several useful appendices, including the IUCN list of the 100 worst invasive species of the world. The damage wrought by many of the species discussed in indeed frightening. The water hyacinth clogs wetlands all over the world; a snake has virtually eliminated the birds of Guam.

Invasive species in the Pacific North-west. Pp. 146-147 in: P. D. Boersma, S. H. Reichard, and A. Van Buren (Ed., Invasive Species in the Pacific Northwest. of Washington Press, Seattle, WA. PEARL, C. M. J. ADAMS, R. B. BURY, and B. MCCREARY.

The U.S. government defines invasive species as "an alien species whose introduction does or is likely to cause economic or environmental harm or harm to human health." Invasive Species in the Pacific Northwest describes these species, how they got here, and the effects of their invasions on the region's environment. Each of 108 invasive species of fish, plants, invertebrates, mammals, and birds -- including earthworms, domestic cats and pigs, blackberries, European fruit flies, Japanese eelgrass, Mediterranean mussels, rats, and terrestrial mollusks -- is described in a 2-page spread that includes a full-color photograph of the species, a map showing the species' presence in the region, plus:-- Impact on communities and native species-- Control methods and management-- Life histories and species overview-- History of invasivenessIncluded are suggestions to help reduce the spread of invasive species; habitat preferences of Pacific Northwest invasive species; the World Conservation Union (ICUN) list of the world's 100 most invasive alien species; and a questionnaire designed to evaluate ecological impact and invasive potential.Invasive species have been recognized as an environmental issue since Charles Darwin's voyage on the H.M.S. Beagle. Editors P. D. Boersma, S. E. Reichard, and A. N. Van Buren explore the intentional and accidental introductions of invasive species. Whether these species were deliberately brought to the Northwest for agricultural, horticultural, aquacultural, or hunting and fishing purposes, or accidentally introduced as stowaways and contaminants, knowledge about them is integral to the protection of our environment.
  • I was able to identify some of the plants that I wasn't familiar with growing in my yard. I found out many are invasive species.
    Oh No! I've wondered why they were doing so well. The ideas for how to get rid of these plants are very helpful. I am using
    many of these ideas. In fact, that is what I think is best about this book.

  • This books is an excellent overview of the organisms, both plants and animals, that are currently considered invasive in my part of the world.

  • I purchased this book to help me identify invasive plant species. The book has good information and includes a history of how a species may have been brought to North America. However, there is only one picture per species. In the case of plants, this makes it very difficult to identify an invasive.
