Despite this, aboveground and belowground ecology have been conducted largely in isolation. This book represents the first major synthesis to focus explicitly on the connections between aboveground and belowground subsystems--and their importance for community structure and ecosystem by: Book Description: Most of the earth's terrestrial species live in the soil. These organisms, which include many thousands of species of fungi and nematodes, shape aboveground plant and animal life as well as our climate and atmosphere. Indeed, all terrestrial ecosystems consist of interdependent aboveground and belowground compartments.

Much remains to be learned about these ‘cryptic’ biological invasions. The papers in this book are based on efforts by an international group of soil ecologists to assess the biological and ecological mechanisms of earthworm invasions, their geographic extent and impacts on terrestrial ecosystems, and possible means by which earthworm invasions might be mitigated.3/5(1).
About this book The most conspicuous biological invasions in terrestrial ecosystems have been by exotic plants, insects and vertebrates. Less conspicuous but possibly of equal importance are invasions by soil invertebrates, which are occurring literally beneath our feet. About this book.
Introduction. The most conspicuous biological invasions in terrestrial ecosystems have been by exotic plants, insects and vertebrates. Less conspicuous but possibly of equal importance are invasions by soil invertebrates, which are occurring literally beneath our feet.

Current views of biological invasions in terrestrial ecosystems have been dominated by what we see above the soil surface-exotic plants, vertebrates and insects (e.g., Pimentel ; Sax et by: Biological invasions belowground--earthworms as invasive species / Paul F.

Current views of biological invasions in terrestrial ecosystems have been dominated by what we see above the soil surface-exotic.
This book remedies that gap, and offers state-of-the art insights into basic and applied research on aboveground-belowground interactions and their functional consequences. Drawing on a diverse pool of global expertise, the authors present diverse approaches that span a. Biological Invasions publishes research and synthesis papers on patterns and processes of biological invasions in terrestrial, freshwater, and marine (including brackish) ecosystems.
Also of interest are scholarly papers on management and policy issues as they relate to conservation programs and the global amelioration or control of invasions.
Because there has been less notice of belowground invaders literature on the consequences of belowground invasions is lacking. One of the most apparent and dramatic examples of belowground invaders is the invasion of northern forest by non-native earthworm species, a subject that has received much attention in recent years (Bohlen et al., a, Bohlen et al., b).Cited by: Buy Biological Invasions () (): NHBS - Edited By: Wolfgang Nentwig, Springer NaturePrice Range: £ - £ It addresses basically all relevant aspects of biological invasions.

Mutualisms structure ecosystems and mediate their functioning. They also enhance invasions of many alien species. Invasions disrupt native mutualisms, often leading to population declines, reduced biodiversity, and altered ecosystem functioning.
Focusing on three main types of mutualisms (pollination, seed dispersal, and plant-microbial symbioses) and drawing on examples from different Cited by:. Invasion of non-native plant species, which has a significant impact on the earth's ecosystems, has greatly increased in recent years due to expanding trade and transport among different countries.
Understanding the ecological principles underlying the invasive process as well as the characteristics of the invasive plants is crucial for making good.Biological Invasions and Its Management in China: Volume 1 Fanghao Wan, Mingxing Jiang, Aibin Zhan (eds.)
