Hereafter a selection of books I highly recommend. Some are dealing with Biogeography and in Ecology in general, others focus on more specific issues close to my research interests.

Quamen D. (1997) The Song of the Dodo, Island Biogeography in an Age of Extinctions. Pimlico, London. p.702.

An excellent book I recommend to all B.A. and M.A. students in Biogeography and to anyone who feels concerned with the sixth wave of species global extinction.

Quézel P. & Médail F. (2003) Ecologie et Biogéographie des forêts du bassin méditerranéen. Elsevier. p.571.

To my knowledge this the best book ever edited on the Ecology and Biogeograhy of circummediterranean forests. Unfortunately it is published in french only… to those who can cope with the language this book is a great source of information.

Weber E. (2003) Invasive plant species of the world, a reference guide to environmental weeds. Cabi publishing, Oxon, p.548.

The best book edited so far on invasive plant species. A must-have book to any Ecologist addressing the issue of invasive plants.

Danin A. (2004) Distribution Atlas of Plants in the Flora Palaestina Area. The Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities, Jerusalem, Israel. p.517.

The most updated atlas of the plants of the region. It includes a large number of alien plants, casual, naturalized or invasive, recently recorded in Israel.

Myers J.H. & Bazely D.R. (2003) Ecology and control of introduced plants. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, p.311.

Flannery T. & Schouten P. (2001) A gap in nature, discovering the world's extinct animals. William Heinemann, London. p.184.

Fuller E. (2000) Extinct Birds. Oxford University Press. Oxford. p.398.

Stiling P. (1999) Ecology, Theories and Applications. 3rd edition. Prentice Hall, Upper Saddle River, NJ. p. 638.
