Mark A. Davis
Reviews and Awards
"An essential reference for invasion biologists and a useful addition to the library of other ecologists. It is also an excellent starting point for those new to the field. Davis has produced a thorough record of the current state of the subject, and he has charted a roadmap that will guide research for years to come." - Bioscience
"Overall, I enjoyed this book. The English is clear and the topics and examples well chosen." - Bulletin of the British Ecological Society.
"It is a fascinating hybrid collection of literature review, introduction of new theory, and critique" - J. L. Lockwood, Rutgers University
"Davis writes well, and clearly. But his big contribution is to the sceptical re-examination of the field as a whole. This book will not kill it off. But if, over time, invasion biology were to become absorbed into broader ecological fields that focus on the movement of species, future historians of science might see Invasion Biology as the beginning of the end." - Nature
