Biological invasions are an important driver of change in the current era of globalization and biotic homogenization. They radically transform ecological and socio-economic systems at local and regional scales. Issues pertaining to biological invasions are diverse and profound, and not all issues can be covered in a single volume. This chapter defines the rationale and the key concepts and focus areas (and associated terminology) that are covered in the book.

Keywords:   global change, history of science, human-mediated introductions, interdisciplinarity, invasion ecology, invasion science, unified framework for biological invasions
