Summary, etc.:
"Britain's countryside is filled with grey squirrels and parakeets, snowdrops and pheasants, rhododendrons and rabbits, none of which are indigenous to Britain. The pace of invasion is now higher than ever before. But non-natives, problematic or peaceful, aren't a modern phenomenon: they've always been with us. From the earliest settlement of our islands and the first experiments with farming, through Roman and medieval times, to the age of exploration by Europeans and current period of globalised free-for-all, the story of invasive species is the story of our own past, present and future."-- Provided by publisher.
