Look at the work of Alfred W. Crosby, including three books:
The Columbian Exchange: Biological and Cultural Consequences of 1492. (1972.
Greenwood Press.)
Ecological Imperialism: The Biological Expansion of Europe, 900-1900. (1986.
Cambridge U. Prss.)
Germs, Seeds, and Animals: Studies in Ecological History. (1994. M. E. Sharpe)
