Yea, I think loosely inspired by Australia's plot to kill sugar cane-ravaging beetles with cane toads (that then became a nuisance).

Jared Diamonds extensively talks about it in his book "Collapse". A good book (not the best one in that category, but good enough to be worth a read).

An odd read that one. A huge distraction at the beginning with pages and pages of "why I bought a house in Montana", and pointedly avoiding any conclusion on Montana's issues. Just share everyone's lengthy perspective. A good book that felt it could have been a great book at half the length.

Out of interest what did you think were the better books in the category?
