First reviewing how invasive species threaten ecosystems, public health, and economies, Gérard Rocamora and Elvina Henriette then explore the importance of invasive species management in ecological restoration on islands and the recovery of threatened species. Highlighting the Seychelles’ success in eradicating and controlling invasive vertebrates, the book goes on to provide detailed species accounts of the islands’ main invasive plants and animals. Covering forty-four invasive species, the book includes distribution maps, details on ecology and specific threats posed, information on control and eradication attempts in the Seychelles and the region at large, and management recommendations.
