Across Australia, woodlands are increasingly being planted on formerly cleared or semi-cleared land.

Such revegetation efforts can improve biodiversity of farm wildlife, enhance aesthetics of the landscape and even boost farm production.

Given the right circumstances, living organisms that we call renewable resources can replenish themselves Size: 1MB. Two of the leading scientists in the field of Invasion Biology, Dr. Mark Davis (author of the book Invasion Biology, published in by Oxford University Press) and Dr. Daniel Simberloff (Director of the Institute for Biological Invasions at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville) will discuss when, if and how conservation biologists and.

The irreversible loss of the earth’s diverse biological resources is given major importance today. The living resources are primarily threatened by habitat degradation and loss, habitat fragmentation, overexploitation, and species invasions (Groom & Carroll, ; Mittermeier & Bowles, ) which most experts believed we are now confronting the sixth major extinction.

The book concentrates on the two species of the genus Salmo with many references and comparisons with the genus Oncorhynchus. Conclusions drawn within the book apply to both genera and as such the book will have relevance for both Europe and North America as well as other areas where these genera occur.
