This chapter starts out with a brief introduction to the history of exotic birds, outlining the reasons why humans have moved bird species around the world. The key concept of the invasion pathway is then introduced, with the different stages defined and delineated. The advantages of the invasion pathway model are presented. The chapter then goes on to describe analytical issues relating to the study of invasions, and describes how these arise from the historical context. It concludes with a brief outline of the remainder of the book.
