Follow us on Twitter. Some species, often alien to Madagascar and introduced by madagascqr, have expanded their range rapidly bingeli have had both negative and positive effects on landscapes, on native biodiversity, and on livelihoods.

Examples include the prickly pear raketathe silver wattle mimosaand, recently, the Asian common toad radaka boka. It analyses three separate concepts commonly used in definitions of invasion: It places these concepts in their broader social and ecological context, with particular attention to local perspectives on invasive species.

We illustrate these concepts with Malagasy examples and data. The examples demonstrate that while invasions can have dramatic consequences, there can be multiple, often competing, interests as well as site – specific biophysical, environmental, and cultural considerations that need to be taken into account when designing policy and management madagqscar.

We conclude with a number of lessons learned. Invasiveness, invasibility and the role of environmental stress in the spread of non-native plants.
