From the various contributions to these two thematic issues of the OIE Scientific and Technical Review, it is clear that, since prehistoric times, humans have invaded every region of the globe and all its ecosystems, in many cases modifying them decisively. During their migrations, humans have carried along with them, intentionally or otherwise, a whole host of animal species, both domestic and non-domestic, some of which have gone on to become established in the newly conquered territories. The articles in these two issues of the Review provide numerous examples of this. The number of cases of invasion increased with the domestication of the horse and the Age of Discovery, and continues to increase in the current climate of globalisation.
