Van Driesche, Jason. 2000. From endemic to generic: Feral pigs and the destruction of Hawaii's native forests. In Nature out of place, 7-31. Washington, D.C.: Island Press. ISBN: 1-55963-757-9.

Nature out of place: biological invasions in the global age is an excellent recent book on the importance and impacts of invasions by non-native species around the world. This book is insightful, very readable, and packed with case studies & well-researched information. Dr. Lloyd Loope (USGS/Haleakala Field Station) says that this book "is a worthy analog to Rachel Carson's Silent Spring, a vigorous, much-needed wake-up call for American society to the challenges posed by invasions." The first chapter of Nature out of place is one of two chapters of the book which highlights Hawaii as a prime example of the alien species invasion problem.
