Ecological Imperialism: The Biological Expansion of Europe, 900-1900
Alfred W. Crosby
NATURAL HISTORY 2004 PAPER 370 PAGES
A pleasure to read, this book is the moving tale of how early explorers, colonists and settlers inadvertently reshaped our biological world. It is the story of the displacement of native plants and animals, transfer of disease and other exchanges of organisms, good and bad, between the old and new world. Second, updated edition.
