Invasive species as 'natural hazards' in small island geographical and historical contexts
Although the role of invasive species in altering the environment in small island contexts is a well-recognised problem and topic in environmental history, including viewing invasive species as ‘natural hazards’, studies have been primarily focused on single islands or associated groups of islands, and usually within the scope of the past few centuries, or since the global expansion of European colonialism. In this paper, I expand the time frame to include pre-modern patterns and processes of human-abetted species invasion in small island contexts.

- The half-yearly journal Global Environment: A Journal of History and Natural and Social Sciences acts as a forum and echo chamber for ongoing studies on the environment and world history, with special focus on modern and contemporary topics. Our intent is to gather and stimulate scholarship that, despite a diversity of approaches and themes, shares an environmental perspective on world history in its various facets, including economic development, social relations, production government, and international relations.
