Until September 12,  let us know if you whish to contribute with a paper to a ESEH 2015 panel on biological invasions in Southern Europe, addressing cultural dimensions, such as:

the early beginnings: origins, pathways, entries and dispersion trails, in order to elaborate narratives on the processes and patterns, and a set of maps for different times and places;

environmental values: perceptions, attitudes and discourses, exploring technical and non-technical terminology and iconography that referred or described these species, their impacts and the related policies (at local level and upwards);

narratives of invasion: local stories of damages in economy, ecology and human health, evaluating different types of costs over time in areas particularly infested and for particular activities;

records of struggle: responses to inconvenience and losses, which analyze theory and practice in the combat against pests using repellents, traps, insecticides and biological control; international cooperation for common management measures and biosecurity policies.
