Biological Invasions

Biological Invasions publishes research papers on the patterns and processes
of biological invasions (both human-mediated introductions and natural range
expansions) in terrestrial, freshwater, and marine (including brackish)
ecosystems. Papers concerning: the ecological consequences of invasions
relative to alterations in community-ecosystem structure (including energy
flow, biodiversity, and invasion-mediated extinction), the factors that
influence inoculation, establishment, and persistence of invasions, the
mechanisms that control the abundance and distribution of invasive species,
biogeography, genetics, dispersal vectors, and the evolutionary consequences
of invasions in both historical and geological time are especially
encouraged, as are analytical syntheses and overviews of invasive biotas.
Also of interest are papers with theoretical bases on biocontrol and on the
release of genetically modified organisms as they illuminate the science of
biological invasions, as well as scholarly papers on management and policy
issues as they relate to conservation programs and the global amelioration
or control of invasions. The journal will consider proposals for special
issues resulting from conferences or workshops on invasions.

Subscribers have access to full-text articles.
