490 1  Social and ecological interactions in the Galapagos 
       Islands,|x2195-1055 
520    This book investigates the introduction of invasive 
       species and their behavior in oceanic islands. How can we 
       define invasive species? What is their history? How did 
       they come to dominate and transform ecosystems? These are 
       relevant questions when trying to understand the behavior 
       of invasive species-primarily in fragile ecosystems such 
       as islands-and to understand the biological, ecological, 
       social and economic impacts of invasions. We chose the 
       Galapagos Islands, a place well-known to be unique in the 
       study of evolution, as a laboratory to analyze the 
       interactions between invasive and endemic species, to 
       understand the makeup of the ecosystems emerging after 
       invasions have occurred, to describe the relationships of 
       invasives with the people that live in these islands, and 
       to try to develop comprehensive analyses on this topic 
       from multi-scalar and multi-disciplinary points of view. 
       For a long time, the discussion has been about how proper 
       management of the species could achieve two main goals: 
       the eradication of the species to recover affected 
       ecosystems and the conservation of endemic species. The 
       discussion has taken on other nuances, including the 
       suggestion that an invasive species, when it is already 
       adapted to an ecosystem, forms an integral part of it, and
       thus eradication would in itself go against conservation. 
       On the other hand, some invasive species are not only part
       of the biological compound of the island ecosystems, but 
       they also form part of the social and cultural history of 
       the inhabited islands. Some of these identified by the 
       local inhabitants are species of real or potential 
       economic value
