By Erkki Leppäkoski, Stephan Gollasch, Sergej Olenin

The international scale of alien species invasions is changing into increasingly more obtrusive at first ofthe new millennium. even though the matter ofbiological invasions grew to become a swiftly growing to be study region, there are huge gaps nonetheless, either geographically and the­ matically, to be stuffed within the close to destiny. This e-book is the 1st try and supply an total photograph of aquatic species invasions in Europe. Its geographical scope stretches from Irish waters within the west to Volga River and the Caspian Sea within the east, and from Mediterranean within the south as much as the Arctic coast of Europe. no longer all components of the continent will be both lined, as in a few international locations species invasions aren't studied but. The e-book has a tendency to symbolize the array of all significant ecu aquatic structures at the broadest geographical and ecological scope attainable from absolutely saline seas, semi-enclosed brackish water our bodies and coastallagoons to freshwater lakes, significant river structures and waterways. the main targets contain the current prestige and affects as a result of non-native aquatic species in ecu waters. Please observe that long species lists submitted for book and extra informa­ tion have been wear the net, because the electronical model of those tables advantages from machine assisted look for info (http://www. ku. lt/nemo/EuroAquaInvaders. htm). Altogether greater than a hundred scientists from 24 nations have joined to synthesize the to be had info on bioinvasions. even if, the booklet doesn't declare to be totally comprehensive.
