Several Division 7 participants contributed to a special issue of the journal 'Biological Invasions' that was coordinated by the IUFRO Task Force on 'Biological Invasions in Forests'. This is the first major compilation of papers on invasions of forests across a wide range of taxa. Special issue editors were Sandy Liebhold (Coordinator of the Task Force and of RG 7.03 - Entomology), Ecki Brockerhoff (Div. 7 coordinator) and Martin Nuñez (an Argentine expert in invasions of non-native tree species).
