The invasive species problem will become increasingly important in the years to come. Trade, travel and tourism are rapidly globalized, and border controls are reduced. This affects natural ecosystems in which aggressive invaders may have disastrous effects. `New' diseases affect human, animal and crop health. The Convention on Biological Diversity presents national authorities with a tall order in coping with this problem. For the first time in one volume, this book presents both ecological, biological and epidemiological aspects of invasive species, as well as the problem of disease organisms for agriculture and human health. The book constitutes a comprehensive background to the global strategy for managing invasive alien species which now is being developed by SCOPE and UNEP. The book is well suited for management staff in various environmental, economic and social sectors. It is essential for university and college teachers, researchers in ecology, natural resources management, and social sciences, as well as M.Sc. and Ph.D. students.

La biodiversité calédonienne, reconnue comme l’une des plus exceptionnelles avec son fort taux d’endémisme, est largement menacée par l’introduction de nouvelles espèces. Il est donc important de protéger l’écosystème calédonien, à la fois riche et vulnérable, des espèces envahissantes, l’une des principales causes de perte de la biodiversité à l’échelle mondiale. Face à cette menace, le Gouvernement et les trois provinces de Nouvelle-Calédonie souhaitent mettre en place une structure collective afin de définir les orientations stratégiques nécessaires pour préserver et conserver leur biodiversité. Elles ont ainsi voulu qu’un état des connaissances soit dressé et qu’une réflexion soit menée sur la prévention, la détection précoce, l’intervention rapide, l’éradication, le confinement et le contrôle des espèces envahissantes. Cette expertise collégiale apporte les éléments nécessaires à la construction d’un système de biosécurité pertinent et efficace pour l’archipel néo-calédonien.
