Aliens: The Invasive Species Bulletin
The Invasive Species Specialist Group publishes its newsletter Aliens: The Invasive Species Bulletin bi-annually. It provides interesting and timely information on invasive species and associated issues.
Contributions, should focus on conservation issues rather than economic, health or agricultural aspects of alien invasions. News of upcoming conferences, publications, and reports are also welcome. Please send your contributions, marked "for consideration for Aliens" to Scalera.Riccardo@gmail.com
If you use any of the information provided in the newsletter, please cite the source as given in the newsletter. If you wish to reproduce a full article please obtain author's permission.
For any question on Aliens, please contact Scalera.Riccardo@gmail.com
Due to escalating printing and mailing costs, Aliens: The Invasive Species Bulletin is now being produced electronically (a limited number of hard copies are available for ISSG members and subscribers).

The Invasives Species Management book has been published by the Oxford University Press and is part of their Techniques in Ecology and Conservation Series. Other titles in the series are:
Bird Ecology and Conservation
Conservation Education and Outreach Techniques
Forest Ecology and Conservation
Habitat Management for Conservation
Conservation and Sustainable Use
The Invasive Species Management book focuses on invasive alien species which been spread deliberately or accidently by humans and have caused ecological change. As a result humans are now applying principles for the prevention and/or control of invasive species.
The effective management of invasive alien species is clearly a priority for biological conservation worldwide. This book first provides strategies for managing such species at successive invasion stages, from prevention at the border to control of major infestations. It then describes the general tools and approaches that are recommended for successful management of particular groups of invasive organisms in a range of environments. In each case, the ecological basis and practical requirements of invasive alien species management are addressed.
The handbook will be useful to a wide readership of students, academics, conservation practitioners, invasive species managers, legislators, and to the broader community concerned with biological conservation.
