Invasive alien plants are harmful non-native plant species whose introduction
or spread threatens the environment, the economy, and society,
including human health. They can be introduced into Canada from other
countries or continents, or from one region of Canada to another. The current
threats posed by invasive alien plants are real and growing.
Why are invasive alien plants a problem? The economic cost of invasive alien
plants to Canadians is enormous. Weeds in crops and pastures alone cost an
estimated $2.2 billion annually.
Plant species that invade an alien area and outgrow the native vegetation, establishing
and increasing their own territory, often lead to negative economic, environmental,
and social impacts. Even native species can behave like invasive species by their
exponential spread. Similarly, not all non-native species are invasive. Many alien
invasive species, however, do threaten the health and integrity of our terrestrial and
The timing of the publication of this book couldn’t be better as we celebrate the
50th anniversary of Charles Elton’s seminal book, The Ecology of Invasions by
Animals and Plants. Since this influential book was published in 1958, the study of
bioinvasions has developed exponentially, alongside the exponential growth in the
magnitude of the invasion problem itself. Today, bioinvasion, a highly complex
ecological process and environmental concern, has become a specific branch in
ecology and environmental studies, with many disciplines developing within it....
Biological invasions are one of the major threats to our native biodiversity. The
magnitude of biodiversity losses, land degradation and productivity losses of managed
and natural ecosystems due to invasive species is enormous. It has an adverse
impact on our efforts to maintain biodiversity and on our conservation programs,
and thus could create societal instability.
In this edited volume, global experts in ecology and evolutionary biology explore how theories in ecology elucidate the processes of invasion, while also examining how specific invasions inform ecological theory. This reciprocal benefit is highlighted in a number of scales of organization: population, community and biogeographic. The text describes example invaders in all major groups of organisms and from a number of regions around the globe.
Microbial pathogens exploit the ubiquitin system to facilitate infection and
manipulate the immune responses of the host. In this study, susceptibility
to Yersinia enterocolitica and Yersinia pseudotuberculosis invasion was
found to be increased upon overexpression of the deubiquitinating enzyme

The long-term approach to achieving protection is “ecological separation.” A true ecological
separation is defined as no inter-basin transfer of aquatic organisms via the Chicago Waterway
System at any time – 100% effectiveness. Ecological separation prohibits the movement or interbasin
transfer of aquatic organisms between the Mississippi and Great Lakes basins via the CWS.
Once established, the impacts of invasive species on ecosystem health are permanent and

Rapid technical advances in medical imaging, including its growing application to
drug/gene therapy and invasive/interventional procedures, have attracted significant
interest in close integration of research in life sciences, medicine, physical sciences
and engineering. This is motivated by the clinical and basic science research requirement
of obtaining more detailed physiological and pathological information about the
body for establishing localized genesis and progression of diseases.
