This chapter demonstrates the use of experimental approaches to control or eliminate exotic and invasive species. It provides an overview of case studies that employ traditional techniques of experimental design to gather information on both invading and indigenous species and form solutions to the invasion problem. It highlights several aspects of integrated pest management (IPM) approaches, the integration and application of multiple control methods, and the correct application of biological control.

Keywords: experimental approaches; exotic species; invasive species; indigenous species; integrated pest management; biological control
