Johnson, Sarah, ed. Bioinvaders. Themes in Environmental History Series. Cambridge: The White Horse Press, 2010.

Fourteen environmental historians investigate the rhetoric and realities of exotic, introduced, and "alien" species. The book comprises several general essays, exploring and challenging common perceptions about such species, and a series of case studies of specific species in specific contexts. Its geographical coverage ranges from the United Kingdom to New Zealand by way of South Africa, India, and Palestine; and the essays cover both historical and recent introductions.

Bioinvaders is the first in the White Horse Press 'Themes in Environmental History' series of readers for students and researchers. Each volume aims to cover a prominent subject in the discipline, combining theoretical chapters and case studies. The essays are selected from the White Horse Press journals Environment and History and Environmental Values.
