Title of Special Issue
Advances in the study of the management of biological invasions in inland waters and the legacy of Gordon Howard Copp (1956−2023)
Professor Gordon H. Copp passed away on 8 July 2023 at the age of 67. Gordon was a highly influential scientist, mentor and friend to many and made major contributions to the field of aquatic ecology. In the last 20 years, Gordon’s work focused on understanding the mechanisms of biological invasions, assessing their ecological impacts, and developing strategies for the prevention and control of non-native (invasive) species. Gordon published more than 200 papers throughout his career, resulting from many national and international research projects, doctoral and post-graduate scholarships, and collaborations. As a result of his major contributions to aquatic sciences, on 25 May 2023 Gordon received the most prestigious Doctor of Science degree, which he regarded “... a culmination of the scientific component of my life”.
As a colleague, mentor and source of inspiration for so many researchers worldwide, this Special Issue aims to attract some of the most prominent contributors to studies in invasion science and will consist of a collection of high-profile papers addressing current knowledge gaps, research advances, and future opportunities in the management of biological invasions in inland waters.
