Daniel Simberloff presents an overview of invasive species, their impacts and management in this chapter. Invasive species cause myriad sorts of conservation problems, many of which are complicated, some of which are subtle, and some of which are not manifested until long after a species is introduced. The best way to avoid such problems is to prevent introductions in the first place or, failing that, to find them quickly and eradicate them. However, many established introduced species can be managed by a variety of technologies so that their populations remain restricted and their impacts are minimized.
