This booklet brings ecology and economics jointly in new how one can handle how we care for the dynamics and affects of invasive species, and is the end result fo a long time of collaborative learn among a small staff of economists and ecologists. the end result is obvious demonstration of the application of mixing ecological and financial types for addressing severe questions within the administration of invasive species.
