This detailed, bright and attractive field guide will enable readers to identify invasive non-native species from terrestrial and freshwater habitats across Britain using photos, range maps and comprehensive descriptions. Comparisons of similar species, hints for year-round identification and alternative names will assist a range of interested individuals, from naturalists, environmental professionals and even ecologically-minded gardeners to accurately distinguish species and their status, habitat and impacts. The helpful and logical layout also presents other interesting information including native range, how species were initially spread and photos illustrating key behavioural characteristics. With clear language and a brief summary of field and recording techniques and glossary this guide also offers assistance for novices to develop their skills in these areas. The authors are professional ecologists and invasive species specialists and have largely used recent primary sources for this publication. It is a good tool for the amateur naturalist looking for identification guide as well as for land managers and ecologists who focus on invasive alien species.
