Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0521301637, Paperback)

This book discusses the scientific, social and legal aspects of the migration of plants, animals and microbes. It is based on a meeting of the Australian Academy of Sciepces, and presents an Australian perspective. The European colonisation of Australia brought with it a steady flood of migrant species. Some like the prickly pear and the rabbit have produced damaging plagues that have only been controlled by the importation of selected parasites. Recent controversies have centred around the value and wisdom of deliberately importing other organisms, notably foot and mouth disease virus and the moth which controls Purple Viper's Bugloss.
