The degree to which invasive plants harm ecosystems remains surprisingly controversial, but the data are clear. Invasive plants are ecological tumors that degrade food webs wherever they go. The third edition of Invasive Plants expands the treatment of non-native plants that are already invasive in North America and warns us about species that are poised to become invasive. This is an invaluable reference for this important subject, even if you already own an earlier edition! — Douglas Tallamy, author of Bringing Nature Home and Nature's Best Hope
