Managing Biosecurity Across Borders

  • For the first time, the book provides multi-disciplinary evidence bases for practical management of biosecurity in complex cases.

  • Not an isolated set of ‘reported research’, but strategically designed to fit together so as to provide a the end-point of a practical planning tool, which is a strategy for management of biosecurity.

  • Each case reports a particular angle and dimension of developing sound planning processes, from policy to grassroots, in ways that shed light on the details and issues involved in each case.

About this book

This book works towards a strategy for managing plant biosecurity in complex contexts. Managing the risks that pests and diseases pose to plants of all kinds is a highly complex issue, made more so in an era where climate change is facing us on a daily basis. Borders between nations, regions and culturally distinct and diverse peoples provide the background for the multi-disciplinary but integrated research presented in this book. The policy, power-plays and vested interests of people from all sectors and tiers of society coming to grips with basic issues of securing their food supplies and cultural heritage provide the foreground in a drama that affects the lives of millions. To achieve change in such a context requires a strong evidence-base from science and social science, and this book makes the first, and a comprehensive contribution to this end.

 

“Just to the north of Australia lie the islands of Wallacea, one of the world’s great biogeographical frontier zones. In this fascinating book, a multi-disciplinary team of Australian and Indonesian researchers reflect on the challenge of managing invasive species, pathogens and other threats across borders both geographic and disciplinary. Frontier zones often bring forth exciting innovations, and the authors have risen to the challenge with broad and incisive analyses ranging from plant pathology to gender, community empowerment and cross-cultural understanding. The whole is much greater than the sum of the parts, thanks to the commitment of the authors of case studies to engage in ongoing meta-analyses of the big questions that emerge at the borders of their disciplines.”
